Anyone have experience with InQTel? It’s quite difficult to obtain any information on career progression, culture, etc. My goal is to have a career in tech investing and I’m wondering the value of working at a place like IQT. I was quite interested and then I heard it wasn’t so good for growth so I’m trying to solicit more opinions. I know this isn’t PE but I think buyside VC posts should fit on this channel. Thanks!

Do you want to and are you morally okay with working with defense partners? Literally the only question that matters here

Yes, not a concern for me, I am interested in serving my country as well. To the extent that funding next gen tech capability is important to stay relevant on a global stage I think this is a morally neutral/praiseworthy service to perform.

Just a rant. Over the last 5 years, top performing MBB "graduates" that move into other high paying industries (finance, tech) seem to have become, on average, noticeably more entitled and simultaneously less capable of getting the job done. I understand this is the market right now and times change... But does anybody else feel frustrated? Where are the trully talented and hard working young professionals going these days as a first step in their careers?

Up to what point is it feasible for an MBB analyst / associate to switch into banking in the US without going the MBA route? How many YoE?

What about in geographies other than the US, anybody got insights?

Thanks!

This is my first job in a large corporate company, and I’m trying to gauge how long it normally takes to move from entry level to another internal position in the insurance industry.

I am a top performer, with great metrics, and I have some wonderful connections I’ve made who support me. I just can’t seem to move up. How long did it take you to move up? How many tries did it take?

To me, it’s a lack of basic courtesy. I just need to let it go because what can I really do about it but it’s eating away at me
