    I have been working at Silver Lake Partners

    Pros

    Compensation is pretty incredible. However, exit opportunities are questionable. You learn a very narrow skill set at the analyst level and the experience can be highly varied. You could be doing due diligence or you could spend your entire year making power point presentations for a partner who wants to present on the economic crisis.

    Cons

    Make sure this is the firm you want to stay with forever, because at the analyst level, there are few exits. Your experience is highly variable and may not qualify you for the jobs you want. Plus there is tremendous pressure to stay 4-5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give analysts more responsibility. The analysts are highly competant and don't need to take baby steps. Senior members should give us more respect.

For Technical part, walk through basic lbo model, some maybe corporate valuation questions.
