FP&A for a Private Equity Firm, what to expect?

I'm currently in FPA for a large tech company in silicon valley. Was approached by recruiting team from a PE firm (not a PE backed company, but the PE firm itself) nearby for a manager role in their growing FPA team. Im familiar with how FPA works in a publicly traded company, but what are some differences, nuances, or pain points unique to PE firms. (ie. what are the reporting requirements typically that PE management cares about). Im guessing their requirement are likely more different, but want to confirm. 

 

Anyone that can share experiences from FP&A at a PE firm would be helpful.
