Consulting Exit Opportunities

Anyone have any insight about the culture with Platinum Equity? I’ve been in discussions with them about a VP of Transformation role to work with their portfolio companies. No comp details yet

Hear it’s a tough culture. But you get tons of portfolio company experience that would be very valuable if you wanted an operating role in the future. Going over wouldn’t have been a pay raise for me, but can’t speak for others. No carry obviously.

Thanks for the input. I know some people that have contacts there (current and former) and have reached out to them too. With the relatively tiny size in comparison to the consulting firms, just trying to find multiple data points to triangulate an opinion and ultimately a decision

They have a reputation for being a bit “greasy”...personally, I would not want to be associated with that brand

I’ve also heard that they’re a tough shop to work for (although this is on the deal side). Do your own diligence; public info on buyout shops is sparse and often incorrect.

They are trying to really build out their VP trans team as they are closing lots of deals. Had a couple interviews, but honestly wasn’t clear on the career path and the position has limited upside $$ potential.

Cyber: EY vs Accenture - which do you think will give me better exit ops when up for Manager (2-3yrs)? Accenture seems very ahead of the game when it comes to tech, but im also trying to get less hands-on implementation and more into strategy and selling, which seems like it might align more with EY. These are just gut feelings tho, would like input from people in the know.

I'm a recent graduate and previously was very close to going to Wall Street. Even though mgmt consulting and banks attract a lot of similar people, I've noticed a HUGE difference in the culture of online communities for the two. Banking (WSO, Insta IB meme pages, etc) are all about money and prestige with a "fuck you" frat bro vibe, whereas consulting ones have a friendlier tone, less money/prestige focus and more liberal political beliefs. I just find this all interesting, any thoughts on it?

I can’t stop feeling so behind all the time. It seems like every one of my peers doesn’t have to worry about student loans, car insurance (paid by their parents still) etc. I keep thinking about how if I didn’t have all these bills I’d maybe have some savings that I could be proud of. Currently A2 making 65K in HOL and I feel like I’ll never be able to save up for a down payment or wedding or anything. Just feeling discouraged.
