I am currently a 2nd year Analyst at bulge bracket IB. I could have the option to work for a Mega PE fund in Sub Saharan Africa (find out in about 2 weeks). I am hoping folks can help answer the questions below:-
- What compensation should I expect as an Associate in Africa? Will it be on par with compensation is North America for Associates?
- What exit opportunities will I have after 2-3 year in Africa? Will US PE shops still consider me or discard me as an "Africa expert" (assume I do not want to go to B school)
- In general, do folks think this is a good idea?
Any and all comments / help will be much appreciated!
