If you're referring to the Healthcare vertical under the North American Private Equity fund, the talent and performance at that fund are nothing special and are both experiencing a broader downturn. If this is a separate standalone MM fund, then I'm unfortunately not familiar with it.

wolfer62, what's your opinion? Comment below:

To echo this, they had some good investments (Navicure, athenahealth), but have struggled to keep up on some of their more outpatient / physician-related names (US Renal Care).

Lol at the misinformation in WSO..."120k with 60% bonus" 

To properly answer your question:

NAPE, the flagship fund, is in line with other MFs (350k+)

Life Sciences, the dedicated Life Sciences fund, is maybe 15% below that

The person who heads the Life Sciences is a savante, fucking brilliant. I am not particularly informed about the HC vertical in NAPE but overall NAPE has great culture, very strong retention among the Associate class and pays in-line with other MFs

What's the recruiting process for Life Sciences? Do you need an advanced degree (MD/PhD)?

There are dedicated MD & PhD pipelines for Associates, however there is a healthy chunk (~50%) of Associates who had some science major (e.g., biology) and then did healthcare IB or healthcare work in MBB

Guessing from your post history you work at Bain Capital, do you know what the base/bonus split is?

If that's their strongest performer, then it sounds like the whole fund is in pretty bad shape lol

multipleexpander, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Sorry you didn't get the offer Associate 2 in Consulting...

HC has always been a top performer for Bain and unequivocally a leader for those in the industry. HCA was legendary, more recently they have seen a lot of success especially in HCIT (Athena, Waystar, Zelis, PartsSource etc) and pharma/pharma services (IQVIA, BPL, Cerevel etc). Style is in line with the rest of Bain Capital, significant PortCo involvement after investment. Team is absolutely top-notch, though I've heard culture can be real grindy owing to activity. Most associates who get the chance choose to stay on.

If you have an offer and are interested in healthcare (HCIT or Life Sciences-related particularly), it shouldn't be a hard decision.
