I heard that in many funds ops teams are considered second class citizens vs deal team. I could see that pay is higher but not even close to the investment team

I have heard they are treated second class, but still can make good money / get carry in the long run (obviously lower than the investment team)

Similar underlying problem solving. Much less sales-focused BS and slide iteration, much better pay, much longer-term engagement with specific companies for PE vs consulting. Typically also much smaller and more stable team of colleagues (at VP and above PE is pretty stable, whereas MBB is built on 20%+ attrition)
