I have been told to expect a case study of some sort. Now, i am pretty good with the typical LBO type case studies....done a... 3 years 2 months
Need advice re: PE exit opNeed some third party advice. Currently at a well known bank (not BB, but a reputable boutique) as a 2nd year. I am in talks with a MM PE firm, offer is almost in hand, just going through the normal back-and-forth that's required at smaller funds. Small team, but the guys there are good (in... 3 years 5 months

Start-up PE funds?So I see this opportunity at a start up PE fund that operates in a pretty specific (somewhat niche) market. Haven't seen many other funds in the space, but there are a couple. Really fits what I am after, long-term. Anyone have any experience with startup funds? 4 years 8 months

How much to not come into work anymore?On the cusp of another all-nighter, a colleague asked me what my minimum $ cutoff would be to not come into work tomorrow (or ever again)...factoring in all the consequences of such an action. During normal conditions, I'd feel like I'm low-balling myself if I say $600-700k, but that would be... 5 years 1 month

Personal developmentSick of seeing the same old stuff on here, so throwing this question out there. We all talk about exit ops into PE/HF/Bschool/other career interests. What about personal development/growth (or shrinkage) after your time in IB? Do you appreciate life more? Find yourself more mature? More boring?... 5 years 5 months

Details on Goldman's New Analyst Policy[quote=DubStreet]I find it hilarious how many people say it's a PR move. I'm an analyst at GS and was a bit skeptical at first, especially when I thought "great, now instead of working 4 hours on Saturday and 4 on Sunday, I'll have to work 8 on Sunday." However, so far it has been great. Tonight... 1 year 7 months
Goldman Improving Work Hours for Analysts?I'll throw in my opinion as well: I actually liked IB (for the most part) but could not stand the hours/culture. I might have considered staying longer if the hours were somehow reduced -- even if it meant less pay. If I had to do it all again today, I would probably still pick GS over Google... 1 year 8 months

There is an old post by an MD outlining his reasons for staying in banking vs jumping to the buyside. I'll try to find it. *Disclaimer: I fucking hated banking while I was an analyst and will not go back unless... 1 year 9 months
