    It is a very demanding place that rewards good performance but has no loyalty whatsoever.

    Pros

    Good benefits, very strong firm, fair compensation.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from Soros family, wasteful in many ways and no loyalty to long term valuable employees. Soros family does not provide any guidance for the firm preferring to hide behind hired guns who are there to grab some money and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Think long term, stop hiring inexperienced portfolio managers who think they are Warren Buffett. Keep an eye on expenses that are a waste of money yet cut salaries to keep people in the firm.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting portal, accepted for first round interview. Interviewed on campus with 2 employees. Interviewers were not very friendly and expected intimate knowledge of the private equity process from their own point of view. Interview lasted about 20 minutes only. Did not make it through the first round interviews into the final round.
