Was wondering if anyone had any in-depth information about Parthenon Capital Partners. They recently posted that they're recruiting Analysts right out of undergrad, for summer 2017 start, on my school's (target) job board. This is apparently the first time they're doing an Analyst class, probably following the PE trend in recent years. I find this timing somewhat odd because most seniors with the qualifications to be a PE analyst have already started BB/EB banking jobs, or something similar.
They seem like a very respectable MM shop, with 20 years of existence and ~$3Bn AUM. Started by the founder of Parthenon consulting (now part of EY) and current Managing Partners include one of the founding partners of GTCR and guys formerly at Bain & Co, Audax, and Apollo. Other than that, haven't been able to find much by scouring the internet.
Would be super interested if anyone has any more info on these guys, both regarding their reputation, returns, lifestyle, pay, or their new Analyst program (highly unlikely, I know). Feel free to PM me as well.
