I rarely work over 55 hours per week except one terrible project 2 years ago where it was consistently 70+ (I avoid that team like the plague now)

like

Multiple practices/functions. I’m APC2 and my work as a C1 was consistently under 55 across 3 different PAs.

From what I’ve heard from other people it does seem like I’m an outlier though, so either I’ve been very lucky or I’m just more efficient / care less

I’ve loved my time here. Hours can be intense at times and it’s definitely not all rainbows, but no worse than grad school and overall experience is much better as I’ve found great people. One frustration is it sometimes feels like we haven’t dug deep enough into the facts to present things with such confidence, but that’s likely also the scientist in me talking

Met a CIO of a VC firm for black beauty brands (like my own brand) who was interested in recruiting me as a venture associate - I would directly be working with her and a contracted finance team for due diligence comp analysis etc. after calling her she said they’d want to do a 90 day project before fully hiring me for the role. The thing is its also during the cycle of other jobs like MBB that I was also hoping to apply for. Should I take the 90 day paid project is that common practice in VC?
