    Pros

    The horizontal structure is much appreciated for junior employees to get access to more senior employees

    Cons

    Very demanding - you get out of it what you put in. And to make a good impression you should put in a lot

    Advice to Management

    The company is doing a great job at keeping their employees happy and working hard

  3. In-House Attorney

    I worked at Starwood Capital

    Pros

    Incredibly sophisticated real estate, funds and M&A work, hands-on approach, associates are given substantive assignments and responsibilities early on.

    Cons

    The hours at Starwood are very long. Compensation at the firm is also below market for a private equity firm of its class and reputation. There is also a very opaque partnership track.

    Advice to Management

    Management should consider increasing employee compensation to market rates as employees often leave to pursue more lucrative opportunities. Firm culture could also be more civil.
