    Pros

    Surrounded by incredibly smart people who are willing to help you learn and challenge you to consistently form intelligent opinions supported by detailed analysis.

    Cons

    Not a lot of downsides. Pay was great, coworkers were great, management was great. It is a fairly top heavy company though with a lot of partners and not necessarily a lot of room for advancement from the bottom rungs.

    Pros

    Management in the Network Engineering Team is the best I've experienced. Very knowledgeable yet a trusting and hands off manager. Great team to work with. Best quality of life job, company treats their people very well. There are great projects to work on with extremely competent, very technical people. Great place to learn and be a part of a team.

    Cons

    The team is very small so there is not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Great career experience, but outdated culture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Warburg Pincus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work; terrific exposure to industry; projects are varied and interesting; opportunity to work with some very intelligent people; great benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    Few women in leadership roles; not accommodating to working mothers; inflexible schedules. If you are like most women, you want a career and a family with the flexibility to excel at both. I found the environment here not conducive to the needs of a working mother. There were little accommodations made during my pregnancy (denied opportunity to work remotely and limit travel in later weeks), and after my child was born, I felt I could not take off time for doctor’s appointments. In this day and age, it seems an outdated mentality. Certainty did little for good will and morale.
