    I have been working at The Blackstone Group as an intern

    Pros

    Exceptional people, interesting, impactful work, great benefits... These are just some of the things that make Blackstone a great place to work, but what really sets it apart from competitors in the finance industry is its team-oriented mentality. I know that's a buzzword in finance, but Blackstone really believes in it as part of its business model. When you add intelligent people to that team spirit, you get the kind of success that the Company has achieved so far.

    Cons

    Work hours, but if you want to be in finance, this is quite standard across all firms. Plus, it's better at Blackstone than other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, really.

    Former Employee - Summer Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at The Blackstone Group

    Pros

    I enjoyed the transparency of my internship. I was constantly reviewed and in contact with upper level management. Very educational.

    Cons

    I had a terrific internship with Blackstone. Everyone reached out to me and understood that they were the drivers of my internship, helping me to fit in and teach me along the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that hiring interns only fuels interest from outside candidates, allowing them to see the inner workings of the company before they may apply.
