I'm a year out of law school and currently work for a law firm doing corporate work. I got a call today from a fairly well known private equity firm regarding possible job offer either working in the legal department as a junior lawyer or perhaps doing something on the business side, depending on my qualifications and desire. I hadn't really thought about moving (other than the bad hours, I like my job quite a bit), but it did pique my interest, as I always thought it'd be great to work for a private equity firm at some point. I just didn't think it'd be this early, but I feel like I should at least seriously consider the opportunity when it presents itself. In any case, I guess I'm wondering if there are people who've worked in or around this field and have any insight into what (1) a junior lawyer would be doing in such setting, (2) how likely is it to make the transition to the business side, and (3) how they find the life in general in such settings. Secondarily, if anyone has any idea on the hours/compensation, that would be good as well. Any observations/advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
