R/GA vs Critical Mass?
Do you think AI will be the next big thing in logistics and supply chain management? I've seen some tools online that I think could be very beneficial to the work we do.
What firms allow you to be a hands on developer? I know Accenture has roles of such nature - but curious about others in case I want to leave. My fear is going to a firm where a lot of the work is done offshore and I end up being more of a “business analyst / solutions architect”.

What chance do I have breaking into PE Ops as a Strategy Manager at a tier 2 firm (5yrs experience). Would like to work for a smaller firm in Dallas or Houston.
Recently read through lot of this bowl and have general advice for all. To get into PE, go to a bank and learn financials for a year minimum. Then use headhunters to find you a job on the investment team. Ops are treated like bankers. PE is a long term play and you’d make more in banking your first couple of years
Does Ares really hire consultants for deal team?

Can anyone provide any insight on getting into IB or PE? I worked in wealth management for a decade and I’m finishing up my MBA with a concentration in Mergers & Acquisitions. Series 7, series 65 and CFP as well.

I have a first interview coming up with a biotech/healthcare Vc firm called Syncona at London. I never interview with a VC firm before and don’t know what VC interview is like. Anyone have got any insights of how to prepare for this?
Ex-consultant 🐠 now in PE - tactically, what did you find most helpful to ramp up quickly and build credibility? Starting at a MM firm shortly and want to make a (good) strong impression! My modelling skills are horrific, so I’m planning on studying templates + ask to attend a modelling course, speaking to other associates + more senior folks, reading IMs,... what else can I do?? I’ve done a bunch of CDDs as a consultant so i have a decent view on commercial but that’s about it 😅 Thanks!! ❤️
Anyone heard of Dorilton as a fund?

Anecdotally I’ve heard it’s easier to move from buyout to growth than the other way around. You might get slightly more hard skills at a buyout shop and can always move to growth later. But if you’re fully sure you want to do growth, then it might make more sense to just start there
Can someone explain the difference for us that don’t know
Growth is a later stage funding mechanism than say VC or Seed. So the companies have traditionally proven their model and need cash to grow. Can be minority stake.
Buyout is exactly what you'd think of when people say private equity. Control ownership and debt are usually a differentiator.
The best roles aren’t solicitous.
I think you should go to the firm that most closely aligns or invests in alignment with your personal thesis. Valuations can't always go up (market, circa 2001).
I also had offers to do leveraged buyouts and growth. I went down the LBO route because it was the "established path." At the time, I didn't really know that I'd prefer to do growth, but I do now... if you know that growth is what you want to do, then turn the offer down and keep recruiting. I know it sounds hard, but it will be worth it in the end.
If you’re interested in growth, there’s a good chance you’ll find buyout quite boring.
McKinsey, what does that brain do?
