    I worked at Oaktree Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and Pay
    Respectful to lower ranks overall

    Cons

    Depending on what department you're in, there are still those much feared bullying issues. Applicants must ask the questions and make sure during interview that they are compatible with the team they will be working with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more fair to all- not just higher ranked/tenured individuals...one day the lower ranked employees could surpass the higher ranked one in skills, worth, and tenure so don't judge the situation by simple factors like who's been there longer and who has more experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Oaktree Capital.

    Interview Details

    I learned about this job through a friend of mine. Got a phone interview which didn't go well - HR said "we need someone with finance experience," even though this is a marketing job, not finance. My contact complained and I got an in-person interview. It was all day - 9 am to 3 pm with no breaks - meeting with 8 people and taking 2 hours worth of "tests" - writing, analysis, etc. After all that, got a call from HR saying "we need someone with finance experience."

    Interview Questions
    • The 2 hours of tests, which one could truly only "ace" if they had already worked for Oaktree before.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
