What is it like working in PE? What type of work do people in this field normally do from week to week? Is the field generally taxing with tons of working hours or does it vary on company, industry specialization, team, etc. Currently a Big 4 management consultant and a head hunter reached out about a PE Equity Operating Associate role in the southeast region.

PE working hours can be brutal too, depending on the fund size and stage. I work in the investment team and the WLB is almost as bad as Investment banking. Maybe someone from the Ops team over here will be able to shed light on their wlb better.
