Mulling over offer to move to a PE firm, significant pay increase and promise of growth potential. Is it worth it? Partner track at PA vs. eventual partner track to MD/Partner at a hedge fund/PE shop?

If it were me I would 100% take the PE position. Public will always be here and you can always come back (as long as you don’t burn any bridges), but this sounds like an excellent opportunity that at the very least would provide valuable experience and most likely some good contacts to provide even more opportunity down the road

So would you be coming in at a front office position? That’s a very difficult move and if you have the opportunity to do so I’d take it in a heart beat. I’ve been looking into that but don’t have the network to have a chance at such a move at the moment

I’d be taking that opportunity - worst case, the skill set you develop in PE environment could be leveraged to far more industry (or PA) roles than the PA tax role.

What makes you think you can be a partner or MD at a hedge fund or PE shop? The reality is that you could max out at 350k vs becoming partner in PA.

If it’s a job you’re interested in doing and at the right level with good/clear career path, I’d strongly consider taking it. You can always come back to PA.
