Hello. Any idea on the avg hours / week between Bain’s PEG and BCG PIPE practices? I know this question can be answered 10 ways, but hoping to get some more data points. I’m hearing BCG is less with a lot of focus on wlb, but I don’t necessarily buy it. Perspectives?

PIPE works crazy hours

differs by which city’s ringfence you’re in. NYC is by far the worst while west coast and Boston are more manageable

Depends a lot on the fund too - i worked anywhere from 55-100h a week on deals

BCG isnt better from anecdotal evidence. Have seen 1am finishes Monday-Friday and sunday afternoon work. If you’re working with Megacaps they’ll expect 24/7 work regardless if it’s PIPE or PEG as they’re working those hours too

In S& Deals Strategy, 50-60 hours is typical. Pretty chill tbh
