I posted in the Healthcare bowl but didn’t get quality responses. PE is notorious for being difficult to break into unless you’re IB. However, there are success stories of consultants making it. Healthcare consulting is lucrative because it requires a very niche knowledge base that is honestly rather difficult to acquire. I’m wondering if that niche knowledge base would make it easier to exit to a healthcare-focused PE firm. Thoughts? Also, general tips for moving to PE would be helpful!

Do you do healthcare strategy or M&A?

I think smaller firms tend to lean more heavily on investment team since many take equity stakes rather than outright purchase. So lots of former IB or IB equivalent skill sets.

What type of role are you looking to break into? The investment team?

I’m interested in PE in general. I want to be more involved in the analysis and diligence process as well continue to use the operations management skillset from my consulting background. I do need to learn more about the different teams within. The investment team seems to be the team people think of when they think PE, but the portfolio operations side of things is pretty interesting as well. Since you work in PE, where do you see a former consultant thriving within the PE hierarchy?

Adobe recruiter reached out for a Sr. Solutions Architect role. If you are familiar with this role, I would greatly appreciate if you could share information on what exactly it entails. I did some research online and while there wasn't much info, the impression I'm getting is that it's a Sales Engineer/Customer Success Engineer type role? It sounded like the role will be focused on the discovery and RFP side of the project life cycle. I think the term is pre-sales?
