Im working for a company that was bought by a private equity in 2015 and taken off the stock market. Then introduced to the market again about two years later.

They left us mostly alone, and most things actually turned to the better. Maybe not having to answer to thousands of shareholders gave management the possibility to implement some needed changes. One example was a new salary/bonus/retirement structure giving a huge boost to most of us. So YMMV.

good point - there is far less reporting and PE has a much longer time frame than the 2 quarters everyone but Warren Buffet cares about
