    I have been working at Altius Associates

    Pros

    Interesting company that invests globally with billions in AUM and many highly regarded institutional investors as clients. The company has offices in London, Richmond and Singapore.

    Cons

    This private equity fund of funds and private equity advisor is small and run by a tight knit management team. The investor base is broad and diverse and investments are solely in private equity funds.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to give to the management. The company is run by a small intimate team based across the three offices.

    I worked at Altius Associates full-time

    Pros

    Access to senior management and other senior players in the private equity industry is fantastic. Solid work-life balance considering the industry that it is in. The people were great - very collegial and friendly. Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Altius.

    Cons

    It's going through a few growing pains at the moment in terms of company direction and leadership. Decisions can be difficult to come by at times. Not as progressive or forward looking as it could be.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a clearer advancement plan for new employees. Turnover has been a bit of an issue recently, and it may have something to do with employees not having any clear visibility on what their potential is within the company and the industry.

    I worked at Altius Associates full-time

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities to meet the top people in private equity from very early on. Also, access to senior management within the firm is always provided. On occasion there are good opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    The company consistently fails to promote and reward the right people. This has led to frustration across all but the most senior levels in the organisation and has led to massive staff turnover. Additionally the acquired skillset and contacts are from a fairly narrow niche within finance.
