    I have been working at Advent International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terrific culture. Great people driven by strong sense of purpose and values. Everyone from top to bottom is committed to providing a strong/ supportive environment to learn, grow, and take risks. Also, terrific work/life balance. Very open, collaborative, and academically honest culture. Everyone is working together for collective success.

    Cons

    Some times limited communication on events taking place within the broader firm.
    Stressful at times given the nature of the industry and considerable pressure to simultaneously balance lots of demands.

    Advice to Management

    Think hard about managing growth. The firm has had a meteoric rise over the past 10 years so important to place emphasis on laying the right foundations to continue such expansion.

    I have been working at Advent International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, collegial culture. Global scale (13 offices, $35 billion of capital, 350 employees) but also entrepreneurial at the same time. Senior leadership has planned ahead and dealt with succession issues and encouraged sustainable development of the business for the long term.
    On a relative basis for deal environments (private equity, investment banking) the work life balance over the long run is quite reasonable.

    Cons

    Decision making at times could be more transparent
