I know this sounds like an insane question, but would anyone here go from private equity back to investment banking?
I know exactly what the implications are here from a lifestyle/compensation perspective, but I'm wondering what happens to the promising Associates/VPs who just don't have what it takes to cut it in PE. Not every post-MBA hire makes it to Partner/Principal. So, where do they go?
Also, how often do pre-MBA Associates go to an MBA program and then have trouble finding a post-MBA PE position?
This might be a random thread, but it was sparked by a recent conversation that I had with someone who claimed that some MBAs they know are/MS as an Associate over going to a MM or lower MM PE fund (let's say, sub $2B AUM).
