I just joined BCG as an experienced hire associate approx. 6 months ago. Started getting reached out to by PE headhunters. Always considered it as something I might want to do down the line, but am really enjoying BCG so far and not sure about making the jump yet. Am I stupid to not at least entertain the PE recruit?

Everyone has a different perspective on this but would love to hear yours. Someone has debt ranging say 4-5% interest rates. Do you attack debt more then investing to move towards a debt free life or do you go after investments since they return historically above that then paying down closer towards retirement. I know the latter looks better on paper but what about the psychological factors of being debt free and the guaranteed return on interest savings.
