Growth vs Buyout day to day life
I am currently associate at a well known growth shop. I spend 50% of my time sourcing (identifying companies, managing pipeline, speaking to companies, going to conferences etc). When a deal gets into exclusivity, I focus fully on execution. Then do some portfolio work when needed.
WLB is quite reasonable but I have some FOMO what I'm missing out for not being at a buyout shop. What do buyout associates do on daily basis if sourcing is not a component at all? I'm worried I'm missing the more technical building part.
Also if someone has insight on VP life at buyout shops would be keen to hear
What are your hours?
In MM PE - so consider it 'growthy' buyouts.
Main difference is less sourcing like 20/25% of time. More time on portfolio management (working with Mgmt on bolt-ons, refi's etc.) and execution of new deals.
Bump - interested as well!
Bump to hear difference in hours too
