Is it worth it to recruit for a PE Associate role if your current plan is to get 2YOE, go get an MBA and pivot afterwards? Seems like most people can’t /won’t stick around to make it to the top and end up doing something else anyways.

Honestly - no. I like private equity and even though I left, wouldn't be hugely unhappy to go back - but if you know that you want something else, why not do it right away?

Need some insight 🙂 While my job still says KPMG, I moved to a small local firm as an S1 and was recently promoted to a supervisor (manager is about 1-2 years out).

I’m in an awkward in between senior/manager spot.
