    I have been working at Ares Management full-time (less than an year)


    Like-minded, career-focused, motivated coworkers
    Positive and friendly work environment
    Encouraging superiors, potential for upward mobility
    Generous compensation, full benefits
    Free breakfast, lunch, and overtime meals
    Beautiful setting, clean bright offices, lovely office park (LA office)

    Ares has been an incredible working environment in that it has challenged me and stretched me in terms of handling new information and tasks, but has still been the right pace so that I can work effectively and efficiently without being pushed to my limits. It is exciting to be a part of this always growing team, and I am happy to say that every day I feel more a part of the community.


    Distance both literal and figurative between offices is inconvenient, but not unmanageable (there are however opportunities to connect across departments if you act on them!)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ares Management in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very structured, interviewed with a recruiter, HR, chief and the vp of the department and 5 employees of various positions. Overall was an excellent experience, each person asked questions related to their expertise and how the job relates to what they do. I strongly suggest to make good research on who you will interview with.
