      (Fund Accounting) Great Pay, Smart People, but look elsewhere for a 9-5

      Pros

      -Excellent pay, bonuses, benefits. Raises are fair. -Very smart people. Colleagues are nice and mostly competent -Boston office is insanely nice (views of Public Garden/Harbor, chef kitchen, free breakfast/coffee/snacks) -Never been denied vacation, used all my days off -Young, energetic teams (similar to Big 4 culture)

      Cons

      -Gets busy (better than public accounting, but not a 9-5) -Work is not meaningful (fund accounting) -Deals can pop up and fall through on a day’s notice. You can unexpectedly have a 12-hour day -Training is nonexistent. Learn as you go/sink-or-swim -Working for rude/demanding MDs is exhausting. But that’s PE. At least the accountants are nice.
