Was thinking the same. Where do you find a company to buy?

Didn’t find great companies here, doubt PE firms go there to get their deals

Whatever you're willing/able to pay I'd love the experience.

I will work for free if you buy and do turn around.

Let's pool some capital annoying the CEO and do this thing

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers.

They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
