Know someone who worked at Parthenon Capital in Boston- how do they compare to some of the top MMPE players in Boston (audax charlesbank etc)?

All of the Boston PE firms hire associates from IB (at least to some extent). There are several very consultant friendly shops (all probably average around 40-50% MBB, if not higher): Advent, Bain, Berkshire, Charlesbank. All great firms. Possible to break into coming from IB but it will be a bit harder given the pool of candidates that you are competing with.

More banking friendly firms (UMM/MM buyout): THL, Audax, ABRY

Other MM (not as sure about IB/MBB split): Parthenon, Cove Hill, AVALT, HIG (HQ in Miami but have offices in Boston, SF, NYC, etc.)

Growth / Growth-Buyout: TA (large cap), Summit, Great Hill

Other Growth: Providence Growth (buyout is in Providence), Spectrum Equity, Guidepost Growth Equity

Other funds: Windjammer, Riverside Partners, many more that I'm probably missing.
