Consulting

How are PE value creation jobs perceived? Is it considered equally (to other PE positions) prestigious or just another internal consulting role if entering as an associate director?

Ah, someone is interviewing at Vista

Vista - good tech firm. And in the sense of being able to move into the “P&L” role within the private equity firm itself - worse than traditional corporate strategy in that it’s exceedingly unlikely. As has been said before the value creation team is a second (sometimes third) class citizen in terms of money and prestige. But at some point - who cares? If the job and culture appeal to you, then it shouldn’t matter as much.

Agreed with a1, and m1, vista (I actually interned there) treats it’s V.C. Folks well below those into P&L or other front line roles. That being said, culture is good, pay is pretty awesome, especially since most of vista is based in Austin or Chicago (again, assuming this is the place you’re talking about).

It’s not equivalent to a deal team role, but you have good exposure to deal team captains, Ops principals, portco CEOs. Great opportunity to make a career within the ecosystem - past directors have exited into P&L roles at portcos, some at C suite level. If it is Vista, you should just ask current D’s/AD’s there about their experiences - many fellow alums from BCG who would help.
