Thanks for this, at least I'm warned! Do you know anything else about them? Like comp, culture, worklife balance...

Is secondaries their best practice? Or are they good in direct investments as well? Is there any practice better than the other in your opinion?

Regarding the person mentioned above, I've had numerous interactions with him and only one or two were unpleasant. I wouldn't characterize him as the rudest person ever but I can see how beef could start.

I'd view StepStone more as a fund of funds with lots of segregated accounts. They certainly also invest directly in companies but I'd say it is more of a co-invest than true direct investment platform.

If it's your only offer then I'd naturally take it.

Does anyone have any color on how the team is segmented and how much time the firm spends in each area (i.e. direct investments vs. co-investments vs. secondaries work)? Also any datapoints around wlb / comp would be awesome if anyone is aware!
