Pros

Enjoyed working with the group, very nurturing and team work friendly environment.

I didn't find anything that I didn't like about the company. I would've worked for the company had not moved to another city

    I have been working at The Carlyle Group full-time

    Pros

    Smart, hard working people, interesting work, constant change (in a good way). Great for people who are resourceful and self motivated.

    Cons

    Can feel a bit political to navigate but that is the case in most companies. Find an advocate to help you navigate around the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating - more is better

    I worked at The Carlyle Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The work is challenging and interesting, and they give lip service to work life balance

    Cons

    Excellence is not rewarded, the entire renumeration scheme is based on how well you are liked by management. Management and departmental turnover is awful. HR does nothing to listen to employee complaints and just watches talent walk out while those who can't leave are stuck behind. They pay well for DC, but not for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to fix the culture of petty fiefdoms, where servitude to a lord is the only way in which bonuses and promotions are given out.
