I have been working at Hellman & Friedman full-time (More than 8 years)
Ethical. Sticks to investment philosophy. Above the bar in terms of compliance. Good leadership. Staff given responsibility - and expected to perform and have a point of view you can defend. Excellent pay and benefits.
Long hours and travel - very demanding environment.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hellman & Friedman in July 2009.
I went in for 3 separate interviews. It seemed like they were all looking for different skills/abilities. I wasn't called back for the 3rd interview for nearly 4 weeks. At that time they were certain I didn't have the experience they were looking for but hadn't decided whether they wanted to train.
