Junior folks aligned to PE practices (PEPI, PIPE, PEG), are you locked into your practice? Do you get to do other cases so that you don’t burn out on 20 PE deals in a year? currently at a T2 PE practice and want to lateral to MBB - any insights are appreciated!

Wtf are DD cases only 2-3 weeks long?

Yeah was asked to do a 3-month rotation on a strike team - but no definitely not forced to stay. Alternatively there’s so much PE work that once you get good experience and make a good impression people want to keep staffing you and it’s a vicious cycle of more you do the more experience you have and harder to break out without upsetting the sponsors

we don’t lock any junior folks into a practice unless they explicitly want to, and even then they are encouraged to at least try other things for PIPE ringfence rotations, you sign up for 3-4 month and have the option to extend if you want

helpful

We allow both rotations of 3ish months on our PIPE ring fence with the option to extend for more experienced members (as mentioned by my colleague), as well as the ability to do one-off diligences if your availability and skill set aligns to the opportunity.

feel free to dm!

At Bain it’s typically a 6 month commitment. If you really hate it or are struggling staffing could still pull you out. Not uncommon for people to do longer stints if they like it and/or are good at it. As someone else mentioned, PEG is a skill, and once you get good at it the team doesn’t want to lose you.

Leaving MBB was the best decision I ever made. I know many view it as a professional pinnacle, but it's not the end-all, be-all it's hyped up to be. If you haven't been able to make it, try again if you'd like, but don't let MBB define your career. It's not worth it. Plenty of other amazing firms out there.

Is there a substantial disadvantage being at a DD heavy non-MBB firm (LEK, EYP) compared to MBB for PE recruiting? Would it be worth lateraling to MBB 1 year out of undergrad for better PE exit opps or is the difference not enough to warrant starting again at entry level at MBB?
