Looking for advice on a career path in HR/Talent Acquisition. I have 7 yoe in HR (generalist/consultant), but then took a long break/gap, so starting over as a coordinator this year. I’m interested in analytics but my company doesn’t have an immediate need for a dedicated role in analytics yet. I want to move into a higher paying role but not sure where to go from here, especially in a growing start-up environment.

In the lateraling recruiting process right now. I received an offer from one MM bank and have not heard back from another MM bank. Is leveraging my current offer too aggressive to force the hand of the other MM bank? It’s been 3 business days since the super day and the recruiter said in my immediate follow-up that the team really enjoyed meeting me (which could be BS but also a possible tactic to keep me around). Would love to hear thoughts.

Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?
