Much less. Big law is a sweatshop. The only advantage that big law has over consulting WLB-wise is that they don’t have to travel very much if at all.

Totally agree with BCG2. Top HF folks make significantly more than top MBB partners, but the story at the low-end and median is quite different. All anecdotal, but my friend who’s a partner at GS makes more than I do, a HF friend makes about the same if you average YOY, andI have 3 IB exec friends who make less (and one who makes more).

Much less in my group of friends (2 MBB and 2 big law)

Yeah, it doesn’t even come close. My friends in Big Law work very late into the night and work multiple weekends. MBB has the fewest hours of all top tier professions: Law, IB, PE, Medicine.

Surgeon here. Regularly working 90+ hour weeks and most weekends. My partner is at an MBB. He works hard too, but he has weekends protected. Meanwhile, I worked 14 hours on a Sunday… But I love what I do so it’s okay.

How many hours do big law new associates work? My partner is joining this fall from after finishing le school so wondering about her WLB

70 hours isn’t that bad. At least you can get sleep.
