Hard maybe, would have to network your buns off but it’s been done. You’d be looking middle market funds

Don't see why you would be more disadvantaged compared with a straight outta undergrad LEK hire, unless you went to a non target or something

Curious to hear your thoughts if I should do one or not.

Offer letter doesn’t spell out RSU vesting schedule and the recruiter doesn’t seem to know what she’s talking about.
