    I have been working at Oaktree Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wicked smart co-workers, truly amazing work that's intellectually stimulating, good culture, most people are nice

    Cons

    Signs of "corporatization" and as the original founders pass the reign to the next set of leaders, its concerning they might slowly make OT lose its magic. Specifically, additional processes, red tapes, etc. At the same time, processes that need to work faster doesnt - e.g. expense. Lots of "non-producers" adding to dead weight and bureaucracies and not to mention adding to overweight cost. Not to sound brutal but I see lots of folks during Monday breakfast whom I'm not sure what they do - perhaps need some internal process/cost efficiency experts to review.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oaktree Capital.

    Interview

    In person, through recruiter. It was a pleasant process. Interviewers and questions were tough, but overall it was a positive experience. Be prepared to answer tough questions and be honest. Oaktree is a top firm and you should prepare well for the interview.
