Big difference between Golub and Ares. Ares, Apollo, Fortress, firms like that - you work very long hours, weekends, on very lean teams, but you are paid very well. As you get to funds that are generally less risky, the hours get better but the take home goes down. If you're looking for a better WLB, you'll want a place that does mostly senior secured. If you want comp, you'll want a place that invests throughout the cap stack, but you'll be bleeding for it. I imagine it would be very difficult to break into an Ares private credit role from outside the industry. Generally those roles are taken by people who did private credit elsewhere, or maybe IB leveraged finance. Assuming you're talking about investing roles.

I was going to say there is only so much information and the real juicy data seems to come from those who work inside the industry. Thank you again!

Is it time to leave?
