    I have been working at TPG full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, decent people, reasonable time-off policies. IT and office facilities teams are very easy to work with, which is important for admins since we're always shifting rooms, ordering catering, and assisting the higher ups and their guests in setting up equipment. This company also knows how to throw a party.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth from an admin role. If you start at this company as an admin, you will always be an admin. They are very old school in regards to "secretaries", not incorporating technology, and any change in general. Also be prepared for everyone in your life to have to file compliance paperwork since you may come across big deals daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though the pay and benefits are great working at TPG, the admins are often unmotivated because there isn't room for growth, and the feedback on our work is limited even during reviews. It would be great to have clarity on who I report to (my professionals? HR? senior admins?); and if I can't be motivated by upward mobility, I'd love to know other ways I can be challenged.
