Summit Partners

Was hoping to hear the latest on Summit Partners as much of the info on the forum is dated.

Most interested in comp / culture & WLB / firm strategy / and fund performance. Aware that it's sourcing heavy so not looking to dive into that since it's covered extensively in a separate thread. Thanks!

Speaking anecdotally based on the few people I know here/who recruited for GE, Summit just isn't known for the best associate program. It's known as a hard climb to VP and more sourcing heavy vs other top GE shops (insight / GA etc), and believe pay is a bit less too. Everyone I know who recruited for GE prioritized other places above Summit

Can't really chime in on the associate experience there, but I have a buddy that works there and he heads home every day at like 5-6 PM and logs in a couple more hours then he's done. Very little weekend work. Seems like great work life balance, although take with a grain of salt as this is just my outsider perspective.
