I worked at Summit Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very fast paced work environment but you will see the best deals in the industry and be in position to win most of them. Incredible level of talent across the board.

Cons

Work life balance for an associate is tough, but you're typically right out of school and still have the vigor to work 100 hours a week. Will pay off though when you source your first deal.

    I have been working at Summit Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, interesting work, terrific organization and competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Very time and labor intensive position. The sales and development aspects of the associate / senior associate role are very low yield in nature and require tremendous persistence. Definitely a "grind". A very competitive environment. Must have a thick skin and a strong desire to be the best.

    Advice to Management

    As the private equity and venture capital markets grow increasingly competitive it will be critical for Summit management to continue to 1) think outside of the box 2) invest in people, information resources and infrastructure and 3) out hustle the competition.


  2. Great place to cut your teeth. Challenging job
