    I have been working at KKR Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with which fosters an awesome office culture. The employees are very knowledgeable of their work so it makes it easier for to do your job effectively.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with the employees. There are more newly hired managers than there are actual workers, so the lower level employees are way overwhelmed and overworked with no promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many upper level workers. AND promote the financial assistants.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KKR Financial (San Mateo, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The process took about two weeks. I applied at a career fair and was contacted about a week later to come in for a preliminary interview. About a week after that, I was offered the job and was asked to come in to discuss specifics.
