I think we need to run an N=100+ survey on experience of consultants exiting to PE. I hear so many conflicting experiences: some people say it’s incredibly stressful and pay is comparable; others say the opposite. I know I will enjoy PE work but the hours scare me.

N = 100+ survey won’t help you as much as you think it will. The issue is experiences can vary so much between PE firms. If your N = 100+ is spread out across fund sizes and you wind up at H&F your experience will be materially worse than your survey’s average. My advice is to try to talk to isolate the 4-8 funds you’re interested in and try to talk to as many formers as possible so you get an honest take

I love watching H&F catch strays. That place can kick rocks

I feel this 100%. While I agree with Bain 1, there aren’t a ton of consultants at some of the firms I’m recruiting for to talk to (only recently started recruiting consultants), and having a larger sample size of experiences would help me be more comfortable about what decision I make (stay in MBB or go)

if they work with PIPE, maybe try connecting with an MDP or two who support these firms

Is it unprofessional, politically incorrect, or a micro-aggression to ask an Indian coworker if they celebrate Diwali? The intention is just to say happy Diwali, but I’m not sure if that’s the same as asking someone their religion, which can sometimes be seen as rude.
