Considering the PE group @ Ropes & Gray in NY. Would be a step up from my amlaw 100 firm. Any comments on the culture / group / hours in NY and perhaps relatedly, Boston? Thanks!

Ropes 4th year here. Work in lev fin so while not in the PE group, work closely alongside them and have many friends there. I can only speak for NY - but the culture is very collegial. Extroverts and people who like socializing with colleagues (esp over drinks) will fit right in. There’s some amount of face time expected in PE that’s not expected in other groups. Hours / work has been insane which is why they’re trying like crazy to being laterals in - but I think that’s more of a general market thing than a Ropes specific thing right now. Let me know if you have any questions! Happy to help.

I've worked with several Ropes associates in Boston recently in Private Equity funds and PE M&A. The hours right now are crazy, but that will be any PE group. If the hours don't bother you, the culture is pretty good. Of course, it will depend on personality and group, but even an associate who left recently said they would still highly recommend the firm - it just no longer matched their needs. Despite what their press releases say, messaging I've heard from Boston associates is that there will be an emphasis on facetime moving forward.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

The degree of relentlessness required to get to that level seems to require so trauma or imbalance to fuel, right?

Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
