How small is the VC fund? Have they raised multiple funds? Are they giving you carry? The PE fund is paying below market, at least for investment team standards

2B is quite large for a VC fund - that’s approaching Greycroft tier funds. Remember that VC, given its higher risk, raises smaller funds. Even Andreessen and Sequoia are sub-20B, which is smaller than the UMM cutoff. And I didn’t have a good benchmark for PE Ops, so I used investment team comp. Seems like it’s pretty good though

Find out if the PE firm pays out at 100% of bonus.
