How many of your PE friends actually enjoy their job more than banking? I have heard countless stories of longer hours, tougher work and pay pretty much in line with banking for the first couple of years. Most people I know in PE miss their banking jobs. My question is, why do it?
I want to open up an honest discussion where people who have moved over to PE can anonymously tell us if their experience was worth it, and if there was anything they would do differently. I want this to help people that choose to change jobs do so with the full picture in mind, as I am unsure whether leaving banking for PE is worth it. Any opinions welcome.
