    I worked at BVP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to work in venture capital or start a company, I can think of no better role and no better place. In two short years, I learned what makes a strong company and business model, I learned to speak with CEOs on a strategic level, and I changed my perspective on business in general.

    Cons

    There is a commute out to Larchmont on the metronorth.

    I worked at BVP as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch for all employees, stocked kitchen, opportunity to provide value-added assistance to the team on daily operations.

    Cons

    Starting salary of $12 an hour is low for a firm of this size especially with the amount of job responsibilities allocated to interns.

    Advice to Management

    In order to ensure intern turnover rates remain low higher compensation to interns would be advised.

    Pros

    The people here are all super smart, and honest. When you work here you feel like the partners really care about doing the right thing for their investors and for the companies we invest in. And they give us all lots of room to do our jobs, to formulate and pursue our own ideas.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Pros

    Great deal flow, work with amazing investment team,meet a ton of great entrepreneurs. Amazing job for someone who loves working in technology. Great exit opportunities if you leave.

    Cons

    Nothing negative about my experience. You need to be a "people person" who is able to work independently. You also need to be prepared to work hard on a deal that might not go through. These are all things inherent in venture capital though - if you are interested in VC, this is where you want to work.
