Trust me, going to PE won’t make your life less sweaty. If that’s what you’re going for you are severely misinformed. Even firms with “better WLB” still work more hours than typical LEK cases (including DDs). You also won’t have protected weekends or ObS like at LEK. It’s funny that LEK is often deemed a “sweaty” consulting shop within the consulting world because the hours are actually still amazing compared to PE. Once you leave to PE, you enter an entirely different ball game.


This is accurate

Bain Cap Advent Berkshire Those are top 3 IMO. They all work a lot though


Summit Partners as well. Though they consider themselves “growth equity” v. PE (if you want to get technical)

All PE shops are sweaty from what I can tell


PE is sweaty by default.


Parthenon Cap Harbourvest Audax TA 4 more for the list^

I hired a recruiter to join my team last august, since then she has been fully owning recruiting but she only has a little over a year of experience. However, She is extremely cocky and makes comments about how good of a recruiter she is. As a manager, how do I tell her to chill out? It’s comes off extremely obnoxious, and the last thing I want to someone to come to me and complain.


Apparently I need likes before I’m able to DM people..hopefully this pic of my dogs helps me reach the target!
