Unless you had IB experience or your dad’s George Soros, you won’t get into PE

Jokes aside, CFA will help but usually to get into PE they are looking for folks with Prior IB experience. Another angle is having expertise in some of the areas that the PE has a portafolio of companies on but you’ll be dealing more in the operational side.

All that said, extremely hard to get in after MBA but not impossible. Couple of classmates did it to smaller PE shops. If no experience and only 3 to 4 years out of undergrad my suggestion is that IB will be the “easier” path to get to PE. And yes they pay more that MBB

C2 is right. That’s how it is.

PE, but IB has the highest risk adjusted salary (e.g. more guaranteed VP promotion, etc)

PE but it’s less lucrative than before because of the top heavy structure/payout and impossible to break in chances. Devote attention to tech instead where there’s still demand

What sort of tech roles could one target post an MBA?

I get PE firms reaching out to me now as a pre-MBA candidate. If I went and got an MBA, would I no longer be considered?

Mck do it for the year prior to bschool. Will make PE recruiting post mba substantially easier

What are list of some PE/IB firms that can be attractive to target? Senior Manager with strategy experience both business and technology..

Hey ZSers,

I have been selected into ZS for the BTAC role under CCM(Customer-Centric Marketing). My YOE is 3.8 in Cognizant, and the domain is ETL, DW, cloud(AWS).

My question is, ZS is giving a great package compared to what I have in Cognizant (Above 100% hike), and Cognizant is ready to retain me by giving somewhere 50%-60% hike. Will ZS be a good choice for me to switch? In terms of growth, technologies, work, pay. Or should I accept what cognizant is giving and get retained?
