    Hours can be long but TPG is incredibly flexible with working from home when needed, time off, flex hours for dr appt, etc.

    Pros

    free lunch, nice offices, decent pay

    Cons

    executives can be curt, they see through the EAs. It's too bad because they do have a lot of quality people working with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    executives should be trained on how to treat their EAs with respect and courtesy. people seem to be appreciative of TPG. generally nice people. there is a culture of separation between EAs and the executives. I know they are there to support them, but it does not mean they are inferior to them.

    I worked at TPG

    Pros

    One of the best cultures in large cap private equity. Very smart, hard working group of people. People expect you to work long hours but are understanding of a life outside the office as well

    Cons

    It's a great private equity firm, but a very large one - not a good fit if you are looking for a smaller team environment. Hours are normal for private equity but long for any other profession
