A lot of “non-Europeans” from my INSEAD class went to MBB London, Amsterdam, Dubai, Singapore and other international offices. For other places it’s mainly the language requirements that will stop you, not visa issues (e.g., they can sponsor a German visa if you want to work in Munich, but you need to speak German).

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
