Does anyone have any thoughts on if I should take a roll at an emerging software growth equity fund? They’re an independent sponsor currently and looking to raise their fund.

You are betting on execution across 3 axes:

1) Ability to close the fund
2) Access to attractive, prop deal flow
3) Ability to create and capture value prior to exit

Does the team have a track record inspiring confidence across all 3 of these? Without more detail it's difficult to provide more tangible advise.

I'm in growth equity now, happy to share more

I don’t know about ability to close the fund, but they are very good at spinning up SPVs for enterprise software companies.

They’re young with limited track records. I’m talking 30 years old without fund experiencing. They have strong networks, but it’s not like they were partners at insight/Dragoneer/Redpoint and then spun out on their own.

They’ve invested in 4 companies through SPVs and manage ~ 40m.

The strategy is to become an RIA and scoop up secondaries as opposed to leading primaries. Obv they’d love to, but it’s harder than that.

Could you speak about your experience in GE and background prior?

I'm new to EY and consulting in general. Does anyone know what is the average salary hike for promotion from Senior to Manager and for Seniors in non-promotion year?

Hi ppl,
I heard that for hike, promotion input about performance is taken from TL and teammates and Lumos plays only a very minute role in it. Is this true?

Is it time to make my move? I’m in a mid-size mkt in a firm of 3-5 lawyers. I’ve been practicing at this firm for four years as of October ‘20 and have yet to bill under 1,800 in a year. This year I will apparently receive neither a bonus nor a raise, despite have a banner year for both billing and new business. I also handled roughly 95% of managing our office move (not just coordination, but actual packing), which occurred while I had a newborn at home. (More in comments)

Have an offer in FDD as an analyst, but am debating whether I should stick it out in audit for another busy season and recruit again?

By the way there is a wall separating the first desk to the second and third one. I was just wondering what you have in play?
