Years as an IBD analyst before PE - 2 vs 3IB
I am a first year analyst at a BB bank, starting to go through the PE recruitment process. I wanted to get anyone's thoughts on going into PE after 2 years in banking versus 3. I have heard that it is better to go after 2 years because more firms seek first year analysts (meaning you leave after your second year) and obviously the banking lifestyle/work itself isn't very exciting so people want to leave ASAP, but others have told me that is beneficial to have an extra year under your belt for interviews.
Sorry if this has been covered before (if it has, it would be great if someone could post the link to the forum, wasn't able to find anything relevant)
