Wanted to get the community thoughts about family office PE firms in general and my situation.
A little background - this is for a junior level position, I am currently working in the credit arm of a large PE firm (think Sankaty of Bain, Thoma Bravo's credit arm, Whitehorse Capital of HIG, etc.) on the East Coast.
This is a newly-formed family office (can't disclose who the family is specifically but they are very well known) located in a less than desirable area of the States (think Kansas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, etc.) with a super flexible mandate but mostly focused on PE transactions. Have been told pay will be competitive with a NY/SF/etc. and the family office is eager to prove themselves and plan to do a lot of deals.
Is the social suicide in a less than desirable area worth the move here? Would the potential connections per the family be worth it? Thanks all for any thoughts.
