    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Apax Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Differentiated verticalized approach to investment team staffing, with partners from across geographies staffed to encourage a consensus-driven deal process and hence, fewer potential investment mistakes

    Cons

    - Slow decision making with conservative investment style leads to limited deal momentum and capital deployment, especially in emerging markets
    - Hence, this results in below-par career progression, as promotions are evaluated on a global basis

    Advice to Management

    - More aggressive view on capital deployment and franchise building, especially in emerging markets

    I have been working at Apax Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very dynamic company with a good deal flow, especially in Health, Business Services and Consumers segments.
    Roughly 1.8bn under management in France

    Cons

    Interning Private Equity companies is always quite special in terms of tasks. Due to the seniority of my collegues, I had few communication with them.

    Pros

    Professional. Strategic thinkers, not just financial engineers.

    Politics - too much internal back-biting getting in the way of performance

    Advice to Management

    Avoid favoritism and work to eliminate it within the team.
