The firm ...
I worked at The Blackstone Group full-time (More than a year)
Very motivated people. People want to win and succeed. The culture of excellence flows from top-down. If you are extremely driven and want to build a career, its a great place to work.
Its a mean and lean firm. You need to work hard to meet their standards and they won't accept mediocrity. Blackstone could also do better with hiring more diverse candidates. Although its a very respectful firm, they need to hire people from more diverse backgrounds.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in July 2016.
Met with several people in the business line. They asked me technical questions to assess if I could step in and do the work right away. I answered to the best of my ability. Their offices are highly professional and I found the conversation to be relevant to the job at hand.
