    I have been working at Carlyle Group as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a contractor with Carlyle Group my experience was great. The people are good to work with and the rate was very competitive. It's nice to work with a private sector company in the Washington, DC area.

    Cons

    Contractors are not allowed to use the gym in the building. Yes that is really the worse thing about Carlyle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Carlyle Group

    Pros

    They have a good research team and they have a broad client base. It provides good exposure to executive search.

    Cons

    The leadership is sub-par and the equity is closely held. The new leadership from ATK has taken over the organiztion and completely changed the culture. It is now a place where people live behind closed doors. The firm is a contingency firm that bootstrapped their way into the retained search world, but never lost their roots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share equity and financially incent people to share information/leads/clients.
