    I worked at The Carlyle Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good comp, great benefits, transparency in management, client focused Best thing was the accessibility to the founders. I was low on the totem pole but I got quality time with thefounders on multiple occasions

    Cons

    Rapidly shifting dynamic environment due to the transition from a privately held comany to a public company. They are based in DC and not in NY.

    Advice to Management

    Remain transparent internally and externally with respect to alignment toward your clients.

    I worked at The Carlyle Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location in downtown DC.

    Cons

    The culture is very toxic. Everyone is out for themselves. The people the founders have put in charge of the company do not care about the employees. The money has been decreased to nothing. Unless you are well liked, you will not move up in the company and your comp will reflect it. Founders care more about Washington Monument than the employees who work for them. It is strictly for the 1% and white men.
