What are the major differences between PE firms? What are the comparison criteria if I wanted to compare which PE firms to apply to?

Lots of things.

Size of company. Size of target acquisitions and markets. Location.

Lots of them have pretty small staffs and instead rely on lots of independent consultants, and/or they have their portfolio companies hire consultants to work on specific initiatives rather than the PE firm hiring those resources directly.

What kind of position are you looking for?

Looking to exit from consulting to PE in a year or so, and looking to understand the basics

Hi everyone,

I've miraculously made my way into a buyside position at a REPE firm $6b+ aum, coming from a non traditional finance background- no IB / consulting exp. How common is this, in REPE? I feel very lucky to be in my position and work long hours trying to keep up. At first, i struggled immensely, but now I feel my heads up out of the water, and want to be proactive in learning mannerism typically taught in IB. How do you reflect on your months performance and keep learning?
