Pros

- Some of the people are intelligent and nice.

Cons

- Huge System/Process issues that make reporting VERY manual and VERY frustrating.
- Old school mgmt style - senior mgmt often resort to shouting and belittlng employees to motivate them which is VERY counterproductive.
- Lack of technical expertise at senior management.
- Lack of training - have to learn most things on your own.
- Long hours.
- Lackluster bonus due to declining performance of the company.

Advice to Management

- Less yelling and more patience so employees do not fear bringing up issues and are more apt to proposing solutions. Take time to understand and address the issues at a detailed level instead of superficial level. Hire people with the technical expertise or with experience with the specific problems of the company.

    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
