Currently in such role for a swf. It's basically corporate strategy + performance management. You get exposed to everything which is cool but also have to deal with alot of internal bullshit. For instance I had to design the firms performance management framework including admin staff as well as help pick out our auditors for the board

Not a typical role in PE.

Reaaaaaally depends on the firm. Can range from being a glorified assistant to strategic leader. We for example have a CoS that is also an investment member. Safe to say this person gets a ton of exposure as the right hand man of her GP.

We interviewed many candidates for the position of Product Manager, we selected the final candidate for this position and he said that his time of the notice period is 90 days.

All other qualified candidates in the pipeline also found a good job in those 90 days. How to avoid these kind of problems in future?

The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
