Warburg Pincus Associate culture/hours

Does anyone have insight into the associate experience at Warburg? What are the hours like? Is comp competitive with other MFs? How is the culture?

Comp is lower than peers. Hours are average, nothing like Apollo hours. Culture obviously group dependent... but generally will work you hard as a first year associate (to be expected)

From chats with other people from my banking class, have heard hours are bad, but not Apollo / H&F level. General consensus among my friend group - from worst to best hours (each line is a general bucket)

  • Apollo / H&F
  • BX / WP
  • TPG / Advent / Bain / KKR
  • WCAS / Permira / CG / EQT

Small sample size, should be directionally helpful

Would say this was true pre-COVID - from friends from my banking class, would say it's changed slightly (only including those where I have high confidence in the information):

- WP / H&F / SLP (H&F hours are brutal but the people are much nicer than WP / SLP)

- BX / APO

- TPG / KKR

- WCAS

Note that this ignores compensation (WP and WCAS are on the low end, APO / H&F / SLP on high end), just hours / culture.

Entirely group-dependent (and as a subset office-dependent) as it is with any MF. TMT is known to have a generally better WLB but it all depends on who you're working for directly. And for the record, even post-COVID while people may have varied experiences with how their firms/groups have handled the WFH culture, it's not like you'll see a very material shift in how things are done/facetime is expected
