    I worked at Schulte Roth & Zabel full-time (more than 3 years)


    Investment management group offers great exposure to high-level financial services clients, including some of the largest hedge funds in the world. Firm has premier reputation in the hedge fund space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The review process needs to be rethought.
