Currently have a 5th grade girl who is struggling with classroom behaviors and choices. When questioned, she says she wants to be a boy, but her parents won’t allow it. Obviously, she is struggling with more than making good choices at school. Her parents are very kind and appreciative of all we do for their child, but they are also clearly struggling with this. Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?

I just joined BCG as an experienced hire associate approx. 6 months ago. Started getting reached out to by PE headhunters.

Tips/data points for negotiating carry?

Context: LMM fund in process of closing 2nd deal (1st since I’ve been an employee). Total EV of ~150mm post-close. Small operation (I’m only our 4th employee), so roles are fluid, but I’m more or less a Senior Associate (full responsibility for LBO model, investor presentation, coordinating diligence items)

When I was recruited I was told we would discuss equity/carry on a deal by deal basis. Would love any data points from others on their comp/etc.

Why do people group MF/UMM together? Isn’t a true MF (eg KKR, Apollo) much different experience/rep/pay than UMMs? (Eg MDP, GGC, Genstar etc.)
