    Pros

    Great culture and firm - focus on honesty, transparency and encorages people to speak up

    Cons

    Large and can sometimes be bureaucratic. You have to be politically well connected to move up the ranks

    Advice to Management

    Stick to core PE as opposed to diversifying away like peers. Warburg has not thought of going public which is one of the reasons they are able to effectively do what they do today

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Warburg Pincus (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had a 1-hour interview directly with the head of a group who was considering me to fill out team after a lot of departures from their group. He was a new group head who took over after the previous head had caused a lot of turnover

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me why I had left my prior jobs. Got very stuck . . .couldn't get their heads around someone wanting to leave a great prior job.   1 Answer
