At what level should I leave consulting? Do I need to exit at a more junior level and work my way up through the firm?

Similar spot. What does your dream company value? Loyalty?

If you had to get me to pin down a level at which to exit, I’d say experienced Manager

You are probably more than qualified. U should probably just apply, I’m sure You will get some callbacks.

@OP looking to pivot within the firm to Ops . Would you be willing to connect?

Converted my summer at a low/mid BB in the ECM team, however now been offered an analyst role at a MM PE firm (~$1bn AUM). Although my team at the BB is far from prestigious I’m just looking to hear some other opinions before I accept the PE offer, one thing catching me off guard is that most of the IP come from non-MBB consulting backgrounds so I’m wondering if this is really a good exit. I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.
