Consulting Exit Opportunities

How’s work life balance in PE Ops side? I am tired of working in different industries/functions and want to focus on one thing while still working at strategic level. Is PE Ops right option for me?

Define “strategic level”? pe ops is all about actually getting stuff done. They dont care about how nice your slides and ideas are if you can’t make it happen. Also w/l sucks. Plus side is you can land very nice titles and responsibilities early on in your career.

I do PE ops now for a megafund. W/L balance is the same as consulting. In the past 6 months I’ve presented fewer than 30 slides in total. It is all about execution.

By “strategic level” I mean making/executing decisions typically made a C-suite/VP level. By “getting stuff done” do you mean actually working like a lower management person to get things done or just pushing c-suite/VP level folks to ensure they are getting things done by their teams?

All of it from what i’ve seen. Need to be able to get all the way in the weeds and roll up the sleeves while also playing the strategic advisor role. Whereas a lot of consulting you’re either helping with the strategy or the implementation- pe ops you likely are actively involved throughout

True. I am just struggling to figure out what would be a suitable option for me if I want to stick to doing just one kind of work. Super difficult to specialize at BCG/Bain
