What’s the latest tenure that preMBA analysts/associates are recruited for PE? I.e are people still getting PE recruiting messages and headhunters year 2 or 3 into consulting out of undergrad or is year 1 the only major window of opportunity?

Year 2 definitely, year 3, would require a bit of explaining as to why you waited so long, but definitely possible. In my limited sample size I’ve observed most consultants recruit in year 2

Most PE firms are recruiting about 18 months in advance for associate roles. You would need to be interviewing either your first or second fall/winter on the job depending on whether you want to have 2 or 3 yrs of experience before staring PE

Quick question for everyone here. I am currently a senior associate at a big 4 firm. I have recently received an offer from Blackstone for an operations strategy role. I have only been in my role for 2 months. Blackstone’s offer is around a 15% comp increase. Would it look bad on my resume for me to leave two months into this role? Also, if anyone is on the operations side of PE, could you share your experience? Thanks!

Firm pulled my offer after I tried to negotiate comp (even though others at similar funds said offer was under market) saying that they want someone who really wants to be there and have a bunch of people who are willing to drop everything to work there and not ask “questions about comp or title”. Did I mess up or dodge a bullet?
