Mission: We come to work every day so that we can make good things happen for other people.
I worked at Stone Street Capital full-time (More than 3 years)
Great training, fun environment, hard-working staff and managers who care about their teams. From the Kickoff event to the fall outing the President is always teaching and believes in lifelong learning. I went back to school and want to return after I get my Masters degree.
The company is going through a Leadership transition and some of the old veterans don't seem to adjust to change very well. They will come around.
Advice to Management
Keep bringing in good recruits!
I applied online. I interviewed at Stone Street Capital (Bethesda, MD) in August 2017.
I was scheduled to have a phone interview on Friday at 2PM. 2:30 rolled around and I still had no contact. I emailed the third party recruiter and asked if an interview was still happening. They didn't communicate properly to ensure the date and time of the interview. Usually I ignore companies that somehow make mistakes in the interview process, but I decided to give another chance. I had the phone interview and halfway through I was finally given the name of the company. I was told many times to check GlassDoor for reviews of the company and overall it was very vague.
I later got an email to have a two-part interview. I wish I was told beforehand the first was going to be over the phone. I was in the process of moving and drive 2.5 hours to find out it was just over the phone and the in-person interview was two days later. The phone call ended up being a five-minute prep session discussing what to bring, who to ask for, what to wear, and stated the interview will be a panel of people. The call itself was ten minutes late.
For the actual in person interview, the person I was told to ask for was no longer with the company, and the person I talked to didn't even know I was going to be interviewed. The interview itself went fine, despite Lou having no knowledge of me except for the resume I brought in hand and it ended up just being him rather than a panel. I got an email later saying "our client thinks you're a great candidate but we'll be pursuing others based on background and skills". I was told before that it was ok to have no experience in the field and that training would be provided. I have years of management experience but not a fit for the company. I was contacted four months after applying and felt like I wasted my time. I was looking to start my career over, and the company seemed like a good start, but their third party recruiting system needs work on communication.
