What happens after you land PE offer ?

Hey everyone,

Just had a random thought. Since everyone discusses how on cycle is getting earlier and earlier, what happens to your effort at work once you land the offer? I assume you aren't going to be slacking, but do people still go above and beyond to succeed at work?

I'm in consulting and currently busting my ass to go above and beyond than what I am expected to do. Some of my peers just do what is expected which would lead them to the meets expectation ratings which is technically all that is really needed.

So if PE recruitment is almost 1-1.5 years before the job starts, what happens to people's work ethic following accepting an offer?

I've seen two types of people:

  1. They recruited for PE because "that's what you do" on the track and they'll later gun for bschool or another job. They turn attention to something else (GMAT score, early promotions, etc.).

  2. You recruited for PE because you want a career in PE and that's that. This type will continue to do their job but won't stress over top bucket reviews generally will coast going forward; they won't phone it in, but they won't obsess over top bucket reviews,

At any good firm B-players that "coast" will be removed. Parasites.

Lol @ monkey shit. Key phrase being "good firm".
