Comp at Growth Equity Shops

Subscribe

Thought I would get a thread going about comp at some of the growth equity places.

 

TA Associates, Summit Partners, JMI Equity, TCV, General Atlantic, Insight Partners,  Spectrum Equity... etc

The top growth shops cited above aren't nearly as sweaty as Apollo/Ares/etc. Personal experience at one of the top GE and what I have heard from friends at others, 9am-8pm (with hours picking up a bit if you are closing a deal).

Hours at Insight, roughly 9am-8pm. Minimal/optional work on weekends (mostly if you want to get a headstart on the week). Hours pick up when you are personally involved in closing a deal. 

I'd describe the culture as collegial. Everyone is given the freedom/responsibility to get the work done how/when they see fit, but MDs/VPs stay pretty actively involved in the development of their team members and the dealflow that they generate. Expectations are high so if you mess up, you will obviously hear about it. But, I would say this is almost always done in a constructive manner. In general, the people are smart and fun to learn from. Pretty minimal sharp-elbowed behavior, too. Outside of work, lots of people are close friends and get drinks together, play in rec leagues, etc.

Comp at associate level is 250k for first 6 months plus something like 150k carry (don't quote me on that carry figure, only an analyst rn). Gets bumped up to 310k after the first 6 months (and I imagine some more carry?). Plus, you get some modest deal carry for anything you individually source. Not familiar enough with buyout comp to know if this is a significant haircut.
