    I worked as a summer intern this past year

    I worked at Revolution Capital Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The pros of working at RCG include getting unparalleled access to senior management and hands on exposure to the buy side world. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to work closely on a variety of deals throughout the summer and experience the private equity culture and processes.

    Cons

    The only con I have about RCG is that deal flow was light over summer. Unknown to me before the internship, summer is the slow time of the year for M & A transactions, which is in no way RCG's fault. Lighter deal flow did allow us to focus more heavily on the deals we did bring in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to keep allowing transparency in the M&A process and continue to allow for access to senior management. I know I learned a lot by being able to talk directly with senior management about any question I had which really made my experience interning a great one.

    I worked at Revolution Capital Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    RCG as a whole has a lot going for them, led by a great work environment that features a friendly company culture as well as a superior work/life balance. Senior management is very accessible and goes out of their way to ensure that even interns have the opportunity to contribute to the success and growth of the company. The firm places a lot of responsibility on interns and enables them to be a part of many stages of the deal process.

    Cons

    The only downside as a summer intern is that deal flow is typically lighter. This is not a negative reflection upon RCG, rather, the M&A market annually slows down during the summer months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice to management is to continue focusing on company growth and to maintain the same level of access to senior management as the company undoubtedly becomes larger.

    I have been working at Revolution Capital Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing internship experience. A lot of exposure to everything from lead origination to working on live deals. The firm is very lean and efficient; as such, interns get to see the whole spectrum of a deal and contribute to the discussion. Management and full-time employees are very open to suggestions and new ideas -- as an intern, it is an experience that you do not get elsewhere. If you want lots of responsibility and learn lots of new things, join the team. Revolution Capital is a fast growing private equity firm. It has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    The work day is quite early and if you pursue the summer program, do realize that summer months are usually slower for the financial services space in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a more structured program to allow interns a more holistic summer experience -- eg. workshops and more active inclusion of interns into deal activity.

    I worked at Revolution Capital Group

    Pros

    nice building to work in, nice office space. flexible hours but it was because I was unpaid. atmosphere was pretty laid back

    Cons

    no opportunity to get paid or the pay would be extremely low. commute from Pasadena was about 1 hour each way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to pay your interns that have worked there for 3 months. Teach more to interns that actually show some promise
