Edgemont Partners

Emerging HC bank, works on mostly MM transactions some larger (average ~300mm) and reputably a sweatshop. 

Some people have pedigree backgrounds some really don’t at all.

If you were to work here, how would you position yourself for PE recruiting? And lateral opportunities assuming I convert FT and stay for 6 months? Should I stay for a year? Any advice?

I go to a target school and got an offer for SA, grateful in this hiring environment. I know I’m more or less as competent as other individuals at better banks (didn’t want to do consulting anymore, recruited for banking after school year started and didn’t make it past 1st round for better bank cause I don’t think I networked with alum enough). Please share any advice on how to best position oneself. 

Turned down a FT offer from them this cycle. I was in ST so also kinda in a harder situation. I personally turned down the offer because of their rep and generally smaller deal sizes. I would recommend you keep them in your back pocket for as long as you can, if nothing else of course take them. The people were generally fairly nice, but I could tell how hard worked even the VP's were. 

Yes the situation this year certainly made FT a much harder ordeal. Not to toot my own horn, but I do come from HYP with a competitive resume, so I did get offers from other boutiques that are generally better regarded. I mean this in terms of their current employees and the exits of past employees. Additionally, it's pretty obvious the people there are worked extremely hard and pay is street. 

would suggest remaking the post under "healthcare focused PE shop recruiting" from hypothetical perspective of an analyst from such a shop, maybe that would help

and /or looking at search bar under this lens. Idk about regular buyout but healthcare MMPE should be possible, definitely exiting into corporate healthcare roles

additionally, lateralling and FT recruiting are issues of their own but asking how lateralling from such a bank makes sense
