Anyone have info on General Atlantic?
In the spirit of many new posts about growth equity, does anyone have any recent information on General Atlantic? There is not much info about it on WSO in general, but it seems like they have a really strong track record and huge AUM (over $35 bn). Looking for info on its thematic sourcing program (right out of undergrad), as well as any general info about its culture, track record, salary, nature of work, etc.
Some good information in this thread: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/pre-mba-career-path-job-description-at-elite-growth-equity-firms-general-atlantic-tpg-etc
General Atlantic is the OG growth equity shop (a pioneer of the strategy (the "BX/KKR of growth equity" to put it crudely).
Appreciate the response! What do you think about the exit opps of their analyst program? Torn between the GA/Insight route or SL/Warburg route. Thanks!
Really depends on your goal.
If you want to do tech buyouts / late stage growth or to a hedge fund, SL/Warburg will set you up better.
If you're interested in a career in Growth, exits will likely be similar.
If interested in VC / Early stage growth (sequoia, general catalyst, lightspeed, a16z) - insight / GA will have better exits.
How is the comp at a GE shop compared to a traditional buyout shop?
Not at GA but I've heard it's between 250-300k all in. They pay associates globally the same ie those in India and Mexico are really living it up
before COVID started, I saw Bill Ford on the street when I was walking by GC. dude looked like $. I'd work there
Is the associate program 2 and out? Also would appreciate if anyone had info on comp?
How hard is it to recruit for associate positions at GA or growth firms in general from a boutique that is more focused on M&A or RX like Moelis or PJT as opposed to a TMT group? Is it worth lateraling to a TMT group if the ultimate goal is GE?
Not sure about Moelis but PJT has sent folks to GA and TPG Growth and a couple other VC/growthy players in recent classes so I wouldn't worry. (If you're in RX you might need a good story but can't imagine it'd be impossible).
Moelis sending 2 to tpg growth next year
Yeah Moelis and PJT guys definitely get looks there. RX tricky due to lack of straight M&A sometimes in recruiters eyes but as long as you have a good story as to why you're interested and why not having worked on a "vanilla" deal as opposed to a RX deal you should be fine
TikTok - they are about to buy it
Can anyone confirm 250-300k comp for associates? What are hours like? Are you forced out after a couple years to get an MBA or look elsewhere? Any info helps.
any info on the analyst program & its comp?
