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

    Pros

    Good benefits - gym in office, free breakfast/lunch, nice office, great perks when traveling

    Cons

    Huge egos from senior management - everything is pushed down, no work/life balance, management expects you to be available to work at any given moment, weekly fire drill assignments, very long hours, low employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Calm down and realize that almost anything can wait until the morning. Stop and ask what people actually think rather than passing more work down to the junior people. Hire more people to assist with the work that the senior people are promising but aren't actually doing

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

    Pros

    The location is beautiful. The benefits are outstanding- free catered lunch every day. Pay is very good with very good bonus.

    Cons

    I can only speak for IT- Management are a bunch of micromanaging perfectionists that treat every small problem like its the end of the world. Its nearly impossible to meet their expectations. Reviews are brutal. Long hours are expected including weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up! you have very smart, talented people working for you- let them do their jobs.
