I worked at Blackstone Technology Group

Pros

Strong leadership team, nice people, solid business model, smart employees at all levels, great working culture and a relentless focus on the customer's needs. Enormous degree of integrity throughout the company.

Highly recommend Blackstone as a place to work -- I only left because I wanted to do something else.

Cons

Challenging to find talent to meet the workload -- good problem to have though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blackstone is a true meritocracy. For the first time, I'm in a company that rewards based on results.

    I have been working at Blackstone Technology Group

    Pros

    At a high level:

    High salary (very good annual raises), good market corrections, and solid review process
    Good Growth - promotions are definitely given to deserving candidates
    Good onsite opportunities available on most of the bigger projects
    Solid company wide diversity
    People are talented
    Good Culture and Commraderie
    Interesting work

    Blackstone has a very fair and reasonable review structure. Part of the culture requires that semi annual reviews happen along with several mid project check ins. This type of structure allows you to gauge where you are performing at the moment and change up if you need to. Also ensures great delivery to our clients every time.

    There is definitely a culture of "getting the job done". There are a lot of very smart people that are all driven to succeed here. This creates a demanding work environment, in order to stand out from the crowd. That's what a true meritocracy is though, and it is working for me and all of my colleagues so far.

    Cons

    Blackstone's core business is systems integration and custome app development, so even if you are working in Management Consulting, you will more than likely work on a system implementation effort of some sort. If this is what you do best, make sure that you join Blackstone!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 feedback reviews would be a great idea for everyone. This way, people can learn how to be better at every level of the company.
