Thoughts on Golden Gate in 2022?

I know they're a top fund but it sounds like they have a tough culture and a ton of people at all levels have left / spun out over the years. Anyone have recent insights on culture / experience there and what their top verticals are?

Golden gate has a standing perpetuity fund. Founder is unwilling to increase the fund size over time, so not many bps of carry to go around. Means that getting the VP promote is highly competitive and the carry is pretty light when you get there. Issue just gets worse the more senior you get leading to all of the spin off funds.

How would you describe work life balance / culture at the firm? If you were a consultant before GGC, how much of an increase was the workload for you? Any sense for how many hours per week you average?

if you could go back in time, would you have taken your GGC offer or kept recruiting elsewhere?

thanks in advance, appreciate your insight
