Pros

Successful investors who provide good co-invest returns to employees, extremely smart/motivated people, given a lot of responsibility from the get-go

Cons

Number of hours expected at the junior levels is excessive, and pay is not at level of comparable firms. Sometimes too much of a black-box feeling about high-level firm decisions.

    Pros

    - One of the only PE firms to hire directly from undergrad. 1st year is hard work, but better lifestyle than I-Banks and more meaningful / interesting work. Opportunity to be promoted directly to post-MBA positions
    - Greater responsibility at junior levels than at the large cap PE firms. No hard line between pre-MBA and post-MBA (partner track) employees
    - Emphasis on people development through both formal and informal mentorship. Formal reviews are every 6 months, but people are willing to give feedback between reviews
    - Generally good group of people who are friends both inside and outside the office
    - Free market staffing model allows some flexibility on picking who to work with and what type of deals to work on
    - Exit opportunities to top B-Schools or top PE firms

    Cons

    - Very granular portfolio reporting (do weekly tracking and reporting of weekly sales metrics)
    - Chase every deal mentality
    - Limited opportunity for promotion at senior levels
