Haha TC1 beat me to it.. you should also ask... how long until the leverage added by PE creates a liquidity problem?

I think it depends on the PE firm, but some have a reputation of significantly cutting/limiting costs. May limit projects/opportunities not tied directly to their key goals as well culture/employee experience and benefits

So should I assume the position I'm interviewing for is essential? If so why else would they be hiring if PE got involved?

What industry is the company in?

Government technology consulting
