For investing teams? Pre-MBA folks, since they’re going into the associate role. For portfolio teams, more Managers + up with PEG experience (no difference whether they were ACs or not).

helpful

I haven’t seen it happen, mainly because it’s rare for someone to want to - they’ve gone to business school already. The associate role is the pre-MBA equivalent in the PE field.

It’s rare for post-MBA consultants to go into VP+ investing roles at PE firms because you generally need pre-MBA investing experience to be “eligible” for the very few post-MBA spots out there (if they don’t just promote from within).

Hi All
How do offer negotiations happen in Comcast - I have less than one week left for the Date of Joining

Can they match up with the expectations? My role is very critical and I have started taking KTs as well

MBB data science expert role (i.e., mostly identical progression as generalists but less up or out pressure) or third (?) tier tech companies (DataRobot, C3, etc.)?

Assume starting TC is same at both or 10% more at the tech companies. That's the figure they're roughly giving me during interviews. Also coming from Deloitte.
