Now, every misstep I make he kills me for it. Should I make a move now or wait it out hoping it gets better?

Yup.

Depends on the mistakes and what killing you for it means. Though in general I would not assume it will get better (if anything, I’d expect it to get worse), it will be difficult to jump after only 3 months.

Interesting all the noise about these PPT, my take: The pandemic took all the upside of an IB analyst life (client meetings in person, fancy trips, suit up, worshiped at networking events) and left all the juniors with the downside (long hours, monkey-like type of job, aggressive work environment). Not that the complaints are not sort of legitimate but you may need to revise the decision-making process that led you to accept a return offer. Specially if you were looking for less hours.

Looking for roles internally at the current company, and the role identified is an individual contributor role. I exited consulting at a Director /SM level, and due to the layoff took a not so good role 2 years ago. The hiring manager for this role asked "why do you want to be a people manager". Frankly, I was a little shocked at this even being a question. How would you react in this situation it you were me? Would you entertain/respond to this question at all? The communication is in writing.
