    Pros

    They support and encourage growth within the company. You may have one title, but if you show interest and ask for more responsibility they run with you and give you the opportunity to show the team what you can do (while still fulfilling my daily agendas) . I have only worked at Hercules for a short time and I already am being given new responsibilities and tasks not defined in my title. If you are proactive in improving yourself and making this place a great work environment, they will be there with you 100%.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of anything I would like to be different.

    Pros

    I started my career at a regional investment bank (think Ray Jay, Baird, SunTrsut, Piper, etc.). Although investment banking provided some invaluable skills, the move to Hercules has been an overall positive experience for the following reasons:

    A) The lifestyle / company culture is a complete 180 from banking. The people here are really personable and everyone has a sense of pride and responsibility in their work.

    B) Unlike my banking gig, I have the opportunity to grow within the firm. If you read the bios on the company website, it is evident that many of the people at HTGC have been with the firm for many years.

    C) HTGC is only ten years old, however, it has completed nearly 300 deals some of which include major names in the Technology industry.

    D) I am exposed to some really interesting Technology companies on a daily basis and have exposure to C-Suite executives at those companies.

    Cons

    Hercules is spread across four offices. The training program involves travelling to the other locations. I personally have lived in many cities so I didn't mind travelling to the other locations. It's also a good way to meet the broader team.

    Pros

    Group of very talented and smart individuals. Able to learn a lot by asking questions and being curious about the industry. Really interesting industry in which to work. Great location and nearby to many of the companies in the portfolio.

    Cons

    Weren't many downsides, except that as a newer company they aren't always permanent processes in place. This can be a plus, however.

    A growing firm with great people

    Pros

    The dynamic of Hercules is fast paced and intensive, but you have the opportunity to work with very intelligent, caring people who are always available to answer your questions and help point you in the right direction. Being proactive and taking initiative is very much welcomed and expected here.

    Cons

    At times it may feel like people are secluded in their office for most of the day, but it is really just they are busy trying to get things done according to deadlines; such is the case at any growing financial firm.

  7. Hard-working atmosphere, but not as welcoming as it could be.
