If the goal is to be in PE operations, is it better to exit consulting as soon as possible (with an offer ofc) or does it makes sense to stick around for 3-4 years and build the skillset before leaving? I've been here for a bit under a year and I feel like I am learning things that are be useful in a PE setting.

If you got an offer from a PE shop, jump ship right away.

Agree with A1. If you have an offer, go. Also, instead of spending 1-2 more years in a big 4, your chances would massively increase if you manage to lateral into MBB.

PE ops isn’t the ultimate stop, my first job out of big four with a PE shop didn’t pay much and they were stingy with raises and promotions in the ops team. So I had to move around a bit.
