Huron Capital - Detroit - Can anyone share their experience they had as an Associate?

Hi All - looking for some insight on the associate experience at Huron Capital based in Detroit (huroncapital(dot)com)   -It would be really helpful to know what type of experience associates at the firm get and what general consensus is on the firm. Curious if there is any semblance of work life balance or if it is banking 2.0. I saw a few people on LinkedIn who left the associate role before they had 2 years of experience so trying to figure out if there is anything driving people out of the firm.

 

thanks

My understanding is culture is extremely bad from friends who have worked there.  They have since gone to other PE shops where they note the culture is much better. 

 

There is a few other shops (not pure buyout) in Detroit that can do super interesting deals that I would check out.  

Fontinalis I would assume would be super interesting.  

Rockbridge I would assume may be very well funded to do some really interesting stuff with Dan Gilbert's new found 30b.  

There's also a couple people in the Michigan area I could see launching shops in the next couple years which I would think wouldn't have trouble fundraising.

Can you speak a bit more on why they said their experience was poor. I'm from Michigan and it's the largest shop in the state so was interested in potentially coming back post banking, so this is quite interesting to hear.

From MI as well. Huron culture is toxic, fund performance is not strong. Other MI funds include Peninsula, O2, and Blackford Capital (not great either). Quite a few MI people in the IB / PE scene all competing for the few spots in the state that are respectable: MI > NYC, LA, SF, CHI for the long term....
