REPE associate Comp, hours, and culture?

Hi all, looking to recruit in the near future and had some questions.

What can one expect for all in comp at Blackstone/Brookfield/Starwood at the associate (post banking) role for investment or M&A associate? Is there a big difference between firm cultures and hours or can it be assumed that top REPE are similar comp and hours. 

Also, is there a major difference between the Starwood/Brookfield shops that are real estate focused vs working on real estate team at a KKR/Apollo PE firm that has other main focuses.
