90 hours a week as a rule of thumb. But at a certain point the hours you work reflect your desire and ability to work without sleep. There is also more work to do and more market share to win

I'm an analyst and I see associates take full 2 days from time to time, not unplugged but not in office; maybe it's an EB thing though

Eh I find I work roughly 80 hours a week. lean on your analysts, it will make your life easier and help them learn

I'm in FIG, our associates usually get at least one day off a week, sometimes two. They leverage analysts well.

Yeah must be a real tough life as an associate, monitoring your email all weekend in case you need to forward something to an analyst so you can wait for them to do it and take credit later.

Thanks GS2. How often can you get a full 2 day weekend off?

By "off" I just meant out of the office. Never really off in any front office job, I was just asking if I could do something some Saturdays

I mean if you're on deals I don't see how this is possible. And if you're just pitching then Saturday is generally free. But I don't know anyone who isn't checking email? You're never "off" in this job...

Associates are never off but analysts these days seem to switch off from Friday night to Sunday afternoon . I think they spend the interim period on here bitching about how hard they work

Yeah. Analysts are the worse. Too much money. Too little sense. No idea what else is out there
