Any known family offices that are great? Feel like these are the secret place to be. Great WL balance (usually very little weekend work, can get busy weekdays or course) but also somewhat predictable. Mandates are also taken without much pressure from LP's and the money in the fund is stable usually. Pay is pretty good because you make up for smaller fees with greater AUM per head.
Sometimes get to do public investing, and investing across a ton of asset classes RE growth traditional buyout.
Which hire, how can I get into the processes, and what are some that have good reputations?
Do they like people from traditional backgrounds (e.g. will look for and compensate for people with IBPE backgrounds instead of being lax on those things and also pay less if that distinction makes sense).
Also any day in the life or more context, some description of how it's hairy, or generally how FO life has been for you or people you know?
