    Noticed this about a senior that I work with - bc partners are usually not super concrete with instructions / don't have time - it falls to the SA to determine lvl of detail for a brief and it seems like they always overprepare with super detailed work that ends up getting cut down a fair bit by the partner. This recently happened on a capped matter and I ended up getting questioned for spending 2x more time when I did it on SA's instructions. Is this normal??

      Pros

      A great firm to work at with a real team environment. The Senior leadership team are very visible and approachable and really care about their staff. Lots of longevity with staff which is a testament to the good working environment.

      Cons

      Work is challenging but I wouldn’t really consider this a con as keeps the role really interesting as always learning new things.

      Pros

      Great firm with a strong collegial culture. Lean team provides opportunity for learning and impact. At an important inflection point as it is gaining structure to support scale and diversification.

      Some cultural inconsistencies across offices.

      Pros

      Great firm with long and successful heritage. Lean team enables great deal experience. Culture is a strong point. Smart, collegial, fun group of people. Invest in interesting and relevant businesses - growth companies that are market leaders.

      Cons

      Work is demanding as in any PE firm. Lean team means you are always working and often on multiple deals/projects. Flip side is I'm always learning and engaged.

      Pros

      Very solid culture of mentorship and apprenticeship. The team is very lean, therefore a lot of thoughts are put into operating as efficiently as possible, which is not a given in private equity. Senior professionals exhibit a strong willingness to see everyone succeed and grow within the firm. Rigorous structures put in place facilitate adaptation.

      Cons

      Because the team is so lean, one has to be willing and able to both step up / take on more responsibilities than the typical role dictates, and roll up sleeves to get things done. This can be confusing if not extremely organized. Finally, the recent headcount growth has left the firm a bit short on real estate.

      Pros

      Culturally great and not a single sharp elbow in the office Seniors are considerate of your time Open-door policy, even among the highest ranks Intellectually-rigorous environment where people will challenge your views and even junior people are encouraged to engage in debates about investment merits

      Cons

      Because the New York office is growing quickly, there's kind of an entrepreneurial vibe which isn't for everybody Very selective recruitment / interviewing and vetting process which felt very long and rigorous as a candidate

      Pros

      Still a partnership unlike other large buyout funds like Blackstone, KKR or Carlyle. Partners all work there side by side with more junior colleagues. large transactions, top professional environment, super smart yet humble. Great team environment.

      Cons

      Work hard play hard mentality may not appeal to everyone but hard working, smart individuals flourish at BCP
