Good luck! Probably not terrible as a Senior, but gets worse (hours wise) the more seasoned you become.

(Also is very location dependent)

Do tell me more please! Why does it get worse? And which locations have the best/worst reps?

Boston and SF are decent....most others not so much. How it is run from top down is an issue-the closer you get to the top, the closer you are to the issues. FDD is always going to be busy and have high-expectations no matter where you go, but it is how those expectations are handled that is important.

Hi folks. Looking to leave the firm - I’m completely burned out and wake up daily with feelings of absolute dread. I need a break - 2 to 3 months - of not working to re-evaluate my life. I’m thinking of just quitting but was suggested to take a short term disability leave of absence, as it’s paid and benefits/job status are retained. Anyone else go this route and can provide how the process works in terms of how to get medical clearance and general guidance/advice?
