Hedge Funds vs Private Equity for tax jobs

2 years at a Big 4 in NYC working on both, getting hit up by recruiters for jobs at both. They've mentioned that HFs pay more but there is more work, ie longer hours typically. 

Can anybody who works as a tax accountant in either industry weigh in? Is there a meaningful difference between the two or should I just choose the best opportunity?

Currently making 75k with no annual bonus (have both CPA/MST), is it reasonable to look for at least 85k+20% bonus?

Any insight appreciated.
