Consulting Exit Opportunities

Any insight into B Capital Group from BCG fish? Is this an attempt to create something that rivals Bain/Bain Capital (along with the PIPE group?) Possible to work there as a rotation or exit op?

It’s not at all like Bain Capital in most respects. Bain Capital was founded, basically, on the investment thesis that buying companies and then applying Bain consulting methods to those companies was a good strategy to create value. They’ve moved away from that some over the years, but that’s fundamentally still what they do. B Capital Group (which is, for the record, an incredibly stupid name) is a more traditional PE fund. It is mostly BCG partners’ money, but other than that it has little in common with Bain Capital.

Wel name aside, how strong is the relationship with BCG? The website makes it look extremely strong, but I’m curious to what extent bcg associates / consultants can actually work with them (or for them)

Hi. Need some advice please on an AlixPartners offer. My background is: - SM at EY (been at this level for nearly 1 year) - Just under 4-5 years' consulting experience + 5 years' industry - Offered top-end VP position. Pay is excellent compared to Big 4 but having doubts about the VP level given some of the comments on here. I would have liked SVP ideally. Should I be aiming higher? All opinions greatly appreciated.
