Private Equity and the Buy Side

Can anyone shed light on what portfolio ops/value creation teams are like? I just don’t see myself on the deal side but I’m interested in working with portcos. Any good consultant-friendly teams?

I just don’t find investing interesting at all. Too theoretical.

As an Afghanistani male, I hate having to list 'Asian' on MBA applications. Given my name they probably think I'm Indian and the Afghani community is heavily underrepresented in business/tech/Finance

Oh jeez. Had been getting terrible migraines everyday and only caffeine helped. Was going off the “up to 200 mg is safe” guidance and having 120mg a day. Now my OB says there is new data that shows they were wrong and caffeine is the worst, unless just every once in a while. GREAT.

When you apply for a job with a client, could they reveal that you’re doing that to your current firm? I’m sure the official policy is to protect privacy, but more concerned about client individuals who may have close relationships with partners/SMs at my firm and reveal something casually while interviews are still ongoing.

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
