Post this in the PE and M&A bowl. There is a McK user that replies to every single post there but almost exclusively gives misleading answers and believes MBB is the only consulting path to PE, including PE Ops 😂😂.

If you are pre-MBA, and have done or can get into a lot of DD projects, you can transition to a deal team as very junior person. This is where people from IB enter, after 2 yrs at a bank. Firms like EY-P (if mostly P, then getting lots of DD is easy), LEK, A&M. If post MBA, deal team is very, very hard. But getting to an internal portco operations improvement (consulting) team or a high level portco role is definitely possible from the above firms. I am now a CXO at a MM PE portco. I did 5 yrs of consulting post-MBA, most was PE DD work with some portco growth work, post-merger and growth strategy work.

I’m getting a decent number of PE ops roles. VP of transformation type roles. Great ones for my interests but not deal type PE if that is what you mean. Manager.

I don’t know admit best, but you can definitely get a good PE exit from AlixPartners. Go to the LinkedIn page of your target PE firm, and on the employee listing page, search for the names of these firms you mentioned. That will give you what you want.

I would guess A&M based on friends experience, but you can get PE Ops from any of the firms above.

Is Altman Solon considered competitive against T2s?

Can confirm, PE recruiting from Altman is possible but a grind. 2-3 secure a PE exit from each analyst class, sometimes deal team. Have to be proactive with recruiters and leverage network

I used to be with Kearney, now in KPMG. I keep getting Transformation opportunities in PE firms. Last week, I got one for Applications and Infrastructure Transformation.

We/ I do get some mid cap PE roles with focus operations via LinkedIn (DACH region)

As long as you are ok not having path to partner any of those firms work.

Comon EYP 1 you guys should chill ! I accepted an offer from your firm but seriously the constant referral BS is a turn off ! I asked a question and if you dint have anything valuable to contribute then just don’t respond.

Fully agree with you, OP. I get that there’s a big bonus out there but I don’t know why people are willing to refer random people from an app where the most frequent topic is comp size.
