I have been working at Blackmore Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Improving communication skill and detail-orentied. It's a very good resume builder. Interns have a lot of hand on jobs to do during this internship

Cons

It's a unpaid internship. Intern needs a very good attitude during the internship. And the attitude can help intern's consistency during the six-month internship.

    Pros

    At Blackmore Partners I got my opportunity to get a close look at the industry. I learnt a lot about the private equity industry, how it works and what it looks for in executives. Most satisfying part of my internship was to be able to work in the deal team and actually to get an opportunity to interact with PE firms. I also enjoyed opportunity to network with people in this industry. These were my 2 main objectives from this internship and it is satisfying for me to achieve them.

    Cons

    It is an unpaid internship but the experience is valuable.

    Pros

    Some of your coworkers are cool, that is it when it comes to Pros

    Cons

    Where to start? The management does not pay you, and does not inform you in that any no deals have been completed in over 5 years. This internship has not led to any useful experience gained and I consider it 5 months of my life I am never getting back.

    One interesting experience is in that the management will give you a 10-15 minute long lesson if you are 2-3 minutes late to the building. Hardly seems an efficient use of time.

    I have also never previously worked in an environment where management is so rude- repeatedly screaming at employees and swering at them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your interns and learn to be kinder to your employees. Learn to say thanks and please instead of swearing at them.
