    I worked at Cerberus Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    Clever people in a global business that has been and continues to grow and can most certainly be considered to be one of the best in its class.

    Cons

    The culture can sometimes lend itself to long hours and extremely hard work, which can over time lead to increased stress.

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cerberus is one of the best prívate equity firms in the world. Team skills are really strong evaluating companies and business. I learnt a lot about DD across Europe

    Cons

    Prívate equity is a very demanding sector, working many weekends and with limited intervention managing the business

    Advice to Management

    No special comments to management team. They are very good professionals and I'm proud of being part of the team.

    I worked at Cerberus Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    This is one of the most renowned firms in the industry for a reason. Strong compensation, smart people, and stellar reputation

    Cons

    Given the nature of the business and the heritage, the culture is pretty intense and very hard work is expected, not encouraged

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the direction of the firm is very strong and the relatively recent initiative to focus on the core distressed / distressed middle market PE businesses are clearly bearing fruit

    Pros

    Decent Salary and Benefits and company is small enough where you can learn many different duties and aspects of private equity and hedge fund and other finance and investment areas.

    Cons

    Really no cons, the normal office politics, the normal amount of good people, busy people, annoying people, hard working people. If you find out your job is too easy, start asking for more work and complicated tasks. Be proactive.

    Advice to Management

    For those that are hardworking, promote from within. For those that make mistakes and admit it, acknowledge, don't jump the gun and punish without investigating why.

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Work is very engaging and changes every day
    -Opportunity to meet and work with professionals across the real estate spectrum
    -Team is extremely supportive and pushes you to learn from mistakes rather than blaming you for them
    -Cerberus is highly acquisitive in this space (European Real Estate) so it's a phenomenal place to gain experience

    Cons

    -Long working hours; I didn't mind but other people might find it exhausting
    -Cerberus is very paper dependent compared to its competitors, everything needs to be printed prior to meetings which can take a while to do

    I have been working at Cerberus Capital Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tenure associates have good health benefits, medical, vison and dental for family even for part time associates. 401k retirement as well.

    Cons

    Management from store directors, district mgrs to top management treat the supervisory mgrs and the labors with disrespect no regard for their human life.
    More worker's and hours are needed to accomplish the unreasonable daily tasks.
    It is not human nature for one to work at their max on a daily basis. This can be very debilitating after time. Supervisory managers are treated like slaves. Constant treat of losing ones job. Must be available 24/7. Evening on one's day off as well as Vacation time. Job doesn't pay enough we're not six figure office mgrs. We do the grunt work. No time to manage the impossible. So please do sell sell us you're horrible to work for worse than svu.

    Advice to Management

    STOP you're ABUSE Bully ING management
    Style. From store mgrs, district managers up. We are human beings.
