STB SF PE Fund Formation Hours

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 05, 2018 7:02 pm

Can anyone give me a sense of the average billable hours/working hours of STB's funds group in San Francisco or a similar firm in the area?

Thinking of lateraling from V20 in secondary market currently doing Corporate/M&A.

Heard some weird things about K&E SF but nothing about STB.

Thanks

I can tell you that STB only has a Palo Alto office, not a San Francisco office, and people there notice when someone asks about the "San Francisco office."

Not sure about billable hours in that group, but average billables for associates firm-wide are supposedly around 1900. Can also tell you the office culture skews late - in at 9:30ish, out around 7 with work from home as needed. Of course, the corporate groups can all have late nights *in* the office when a deal is going full steam.

Mike Nooney is the main funds partner, but he's almost never in the office, and Robert Guo is his main senior associate. Not sure who the juniors are.

Hope that helps.

Firmwide, the STB funds group is the busiest practice group and probably averages 2200 a year (compared to around 1900 for the other groups). The PA team is pretty laid back (only 5 or so on the team right now), so many of those hours could be at home and not at work though people do tend to get in later (though that could be firm wide outside of NY really). You may have a tough time lateralling into the group from M&A given the size of the group and depending on your class year. Funds is different enough from M&A that they recently split from the M&A group and became their own practice group.
