Thoughts on accepting an offer knowing the possibility that you might decline their offer during the background check process? Is this ok? I have an offer, but im only given a few days to decide, but I am interviewing for another 2 companies that are a bit slow and I might get an offer from 1 or both of them before the end of this month. The 2 slower companies are my preference over the 1 that I have an offer for. Thoughts on how to navigate this?
Chatting with this guy and he's talkative but doesn't ask a lot of questions. Tells me a lot about himself and I'll share bits and pieces and ask questions but he won't really expand on them or ask anything more, and the conversation goes back to him 😂 do I need to do a better job of talking about myself, or is this a yellow/red flag that he's too into himself. We've been talking a few weeks. He's in another country.

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?)
