Hey fellow vets, In my second year post-MBA at a strategy focused firm (DD and strategic road mapping; we do up to post-merger integration but very little straight ops work) and starting to look at exit opps. I would like to get P&L responsibility as soon as I can, but not sure what the right exit is for that. Should I be focusing on corporate strategy at medium to large orgs that can parlay into GM, or look at something else? Ultimately I want to be an operating partner in PE or C-suite

Why not target a PE ops teams role then?

I’ve given thought to it but haven’t seen the prevalence of it in typical job searches or through exec recruiters. Since that’s been the case I have felt perhaps it’s not the best fit

I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company. It seemed great during the interview but once I got here it was very unorganized, not clear which team I would support, etc. Long story short, I was told we would have a hybrid work schedule and we are now required to go in-office full time 5 days a week and there have been a ton of layoffs recently. Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?
