How do I not work 12 hours a day? Been burnt out for a while and can feel my health deteriorating but not in a financial position to take a vacation. I’ve tried to raise this to management

I have more questions than answers. Are you asking how to work 12 hours (ie 10am-10pm) effectively? Or how to get out of doing so? You can try becoming more efficient for one. Second year analysts become incredibly good at maximizing their productivity - see if they’ll teach you. Or learn to cope better with a large workload. You must have some end goal to push toward. many others have it as bad (or much worse). Or....just suck and/or push back aggressively. Then the problem will solve itself (temporarily). Why do you need money to take time off?

Thoughts on Big 4 -> PE ops role? 2 years out of undergrad, interviewing for a 2 year analyst role, would then do MBA afterwards. Interest post-MBA would be turnaround and restructuring Not a "name brand" firm. Smaller, local shop but role would have broad exposure across the firm and might involve work with investment team after year 1
