Left, earning 60-80k more in UMM PE firm vs expected comp at MBB firm. More c level exposure, more interesting work, less focus on making shit pretty, building different skill set. Would do again.

Can i ask how you made the jump? Did you actively pursue certain funds that like consulting backgrounds?

Hours similar to before, less travel (and usually 2-5 day trips a month or more if doing something at a portfolio company). Most of the time on new opportunities- so building financial models, meeting with management teams, structuring diligence, etc; 20-30% on portfolio stuff including reporting, board meetings, one off projects.

Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB. I am 29, have an MA in IOP, and 10 YEO. I have never worked for a non-Jewish company (despite trying pretty damn hard to get out) and I’m freaking out. I have no concept of normal professionalism, strategy for navigating the workplace and the real world in corporate USA,(cont. in comment)

Serious question: What is the perceived value of a PhD in industry? Have a buddy who is a PhD in Economics at a top 10 who wants to go to industry afterwards. She’s a third year and is debating opting for the Master’s option and going to work or just sticking it out and getting the degree and recruiting MBB with a maybe successful chance. She doesn’t want to be a data scientist or anything that really needs a PhD. I say go work since that’s valued more in industry. Welcome your thoughts.
