Advice from people who left?
I'd love some advice from people who left PE as an associate / snr associate. I know probably 60-80% of people in PE end up trying to stay in this industry in one way or another, but I'm getting exhausted by the stress / pressure and time commitment required. I know b school followed by Corp Strategy or Corp dev or something is somewhat common, but I'd love some perspective on what others have done upon leaving PE, particularly for those who left for better lifestyle.
I'm trying to get a sense for what's really out there (what types of roles), compensation (and expected pay cut), work life balance, remote / in person, etc.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Additionally, if anyone here is open to chatting live I'd be really grateful for the chance to do so.
