Thanks PE1! I’ve been working on the WSO pdf guides. Did you move from consulting to PE? I was in consulting as a Manager at Big 4 doing strategy. And now in tech corp strat. Interested in learning about portfolio ops vs investment team work in PE. Will be grateful if I could DM you or if you have a burner. Thanks!

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate

Moved here for an opportunity. The "agency" focus is on sports and the first round of layoffs happened this past week. I dont plan to stay to see myself and my department laid off. Wondering where should I go next, Ive got plenty of experience and I'm more than happy to send my book if needed. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Question about a couple of opportunities that I am considering. 1. A consulting company which is willing to pay me more than the second opportunity but work is going to be based out of Toronto. 2. An insurance company and position is based in Kitchener/Waterloo. Does the extra pay make up for the diff in cost of living between Toronto and KW? Also will higher taxes based on tax brackets offset any advantage? Fyi 200k consulting vs 150-155k insurance. Assume future potential as same. Suggestions?
