Does anyone know of K1 Investment Management in LA?

They claim to hire private equity analysts out of undergrad but I'm a bit suspicious of the reviews from Glassdoor. Trying to see if anyone has interviewed or have any information on them. Thanks!

I've heard that they pay well below market - most of their investment professionals are non-bankers. Would not recommend unless you have no other alternative.

i second this, seen the office, being in Manhattan beach its a nice location. regardless if you look at the team on the company website, few have banking backgrounds.

I interviewed with them years ago. Few things to note:

  • weird cliche interview questions
  • Mostly looking for business development people "with an opportunity to move over to the technical side (read - hiring cold calling sales people doing jack shit in terms of actual PE work
  • El Segundo
  • Offered pay was laughable
