    I worked at CVC Capital Partners full-time


    - company has a global presence.


    - for a small office (25 ppl approx) there are many "deadwood" employees who should no longer be there.
    - many employees are mismatched to their role (they don't want to be the "X title", or are unqualified and it shows.
    - there is a lot of inequality of distribution of responsibilities. Good staffers are working hard, poor staffers are hardly working - creating a sense of dissatisfaction/bitterness that good staffer has the workload of 2 ppl, when poor staff is just floating along w/out penalty. This is how you loose good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the deadwood staffers - they are dragging you down along w/ the reputation of the firm. Longevity does not = good staffer. NYC office is too small to let bad employees linger.
