    Pros

    Location - Office is in a wonderful waterfront location in downtown La Jolla.
    Client base - PCG has a strong/branded group of limited partner investors/clients - CalPERS, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, etc

    Cons

    Management team - The senior management team does not properly/sufficiently support the middle and junior levels In-fighting - There is significant in-fighting at PCG as it is a place where no one plays on the same team
    Absence of leadership/direction 0 There is no clear strategy or strong person to follow
    Compensation - PCG consistently underpays talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure senior team and rebuild the rewards program, spread carried interest throughout ranks

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, motivated and knowledgeable colleagues, interesting projects within a global emphasis, and incredibly intelligent and approachable senior management. PCGI is by far the best place I have worked at.

    Cons

    be prepared for a lot of work - evenings, don't expect to be home before 8 or 9 PM, and expect to spend 1 to 2 weekends at work per month on average. then again, the work is just fascinating, so you'll find yourself going there on WE out of pleasure... most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work, it was great to work with all of you, woudn't change a thing (well, maybe invest in more bloomberg terminals)
