If you’re PEG it may be fewer hours... otherwise it’s going to be heavier problem solving / more hat wearing. Many find that energizing.

Depends on PEG case of course, but my friends who went from PEG to PE have actually cited worse hours during live deals (75+) whereas I usually swung 65 on the average diligence. I’ve only been on one PEG case in my four years that had hours that bad/worse, and that was known across the Bain system as brutal. I think during non-deal periods, the associates are swinging 55-65 depending on the week so the hours are better. But it sounds like those periods aren’t too common...? Also, no weekend protection in PE. That said, OP, if there’s any chance you want to do PE post-MBA, it’s worth trying before you head over to school. Tough to get a buy side role coming out of business school.

With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).
