Which group? Know someone in the small business fund who isn't too happy.

What about the small business fund caused them to be unhappy?

I think overall pay / culture was a bit frustrating for my buddy. Said he was treated more like a 1st year analyst in IB than a pre-MBA associate. Don't have too much else to add, sorry.

Good guys. Lousy performance.

There are a pretty solid financial sponsor. I am not sure what size their current buyout fund size is or if they have been active recently. It is pretty well known PEG though.

Hi all-bumping this thread. Does anyone have info on AEA's small business fund, including culture, reputation, lifestyle and interview process? Much appreciated.

The main fund is a well regarded UMM fund with strong returns, similar to an Advent, NMC, Golden Gate, etc. Not sure about the small business fund

I would say they are an okay mm sponsor but not in the tier of the guys you mentioned

Jul 7, 2018

they def aren't in the same league as the ones you mentioned there

Lower MM shop with okay (not bad / not impressive) talent / performance - certainly not in same league as firms mentioned above.

Folks there look very impressive. Go take 30 seconds and google it

This is old but they are by no stretch of the imagination a LMM fund - they have the "small business fund", but the larger fund is a highly regarded UMM player. Just not sure where you're going with that. Also takes about 2 minutes of homework in their IP's to see they get top talent, even on the credit side.
