I hope your agency thinks about the consumer/backlash and not aid in the ignorance of this client.

Please keep us updated on here. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know how this plays out.

Now what?! What is the background to this ask?

You know what...I don't think there's any rationalization for this ask that's not going to make me want to go off. Won't "they" just let us be great?

What is the career progression like in PE? At McKinsey where I am now, it’s fairly standardized, about 2-3 years at each level, and up/out model. If can’t get elected partner after 2 or 3 cycles, will likely get counseled out. Partner eligible for senior partnership after 6 years. How is it in PE? Is it up/out as well or can you end up being “stuck” at associate level for 10 years? How likely is it to be promoted, how fast and what happens if you are asked to leave (where do you go next?)
