PG's analyst program is great, pays a bit below market in CH but still considerably above London. However, you would have to consider that it is not a pure PE program. You will do PD, secondaries or even investor relations. While your chances for a rotation in PE are great, it's not guaranteed that you will actually end up where you would like to be.

Also, PG is not based in Zurich but between Zug and Baar (a very rural area). There is literally nothing going on. So if you are an outgoing person and would like city vibes, this might be an important detail to consider.
