Same post from the Private Equity section but hoping to get more advice. Does it make sense for me to go from PE to Consulting now?
A bit of background on myself: I got a computer science degree in Canada, did a few years of M&A and have been in PE for almost two years now. My PE exposure is very limited on the portfolio management side, but heavily focused on transactions (entry/exit). I'm burnt out with deals and don't see myself having a very focused career in finance, would like to explore operations, strategy, and more leadership roles. What complicates this matter is I'm also planning a move to the U.S., (west cost) at the end of the year, while my bonus cycle is June of this year.
I've spoken with a ton of people in the industry and I think my most optimal move right now is to go to MBB after bonus? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it'll allow me to relocate easier and take a step closer to operations and more broad exit ops outside of finance.
Has anyone seen a precedent from IB to PE to MBB, then ideally to an industry role? Does it make sense? What other options do I have?
