Providence is OK as a city. Boston is only 45 minutes away or so.

Commute is definitely not an hour and a half. It's 45 minutes, 60 at the most in traffic. Providence is a really nice small city, but if you're coming from New York you'd be better off commuting from Boston as you'll probably get bored there. Great place to raise a family though, especially on the east side near Brown and RISD.

As for Providence Equity, they've had some growing pains in the 2000's - they exploded from a top mid-market firm into a megafund and it took them a while to adjust to the scale. That said, from what I've heard they're good guys and know the media / entertainment space as well as any fund, so if that's your interest and you have the opportunity to interview, it's definitely worth the look.

Pretty standard. They pull from top groups, particularly those with M&A/LevFin/TMT experience. Obviously having a tie / interesting in living in that part of the country helps as they know it's not a top destination for recruits. I think Amity led their recruiting back when I was looking at them but can't remember for sure; might have been SG.

All I'll say is that its a good firm (that's gotten into some tough deals as of late -- only time can tell). Not sure about NYC but hours are a little better than the other mega buyouts, but not drastically, though with the climate nowadays who knows. Culture is ok, not the best out there, but i knew some guys who had fun.

Does anyone know if all first year associates get hired to the RI office or if there is the possibility of starting in NYC?

To clarify, I see that they have associates in NYC on their website, but it's unclear to me whether they started and then moved after a short time.

Any other current info is appreciated (esp. culture of the firm)
