Deal side or value creation side? I’ve seen plenty on the value creation side which isn’t a ton different than consulting.

Leaving as a senior associate?

Value creation side

D1, could you elaborate on “value creation”? Do you mean ops opportunities with PE firm or with portfolio companies? My sense is that there is a lot of variation in how / how much PE firms hire for these roles but that PE is currently sitting on a ton of money to deploy and hence hiring here should pick up.

Thank you, this is helpful and what I meant too by “ops” (I think the term derives from “operating” vs. “general” partners).

I currently work a lot on create value for our portfolio companies and how to create new companies within them

It’s a smaller PE firm. Don’t have carry. Decent pay though
