    Pros

    The Group works well with each other and is very helpful. The experience was impeccable as an employee and the firm is very active in the Private equity space and now is looking into expansion options which provides a wide breadth of knowledge. The day to day work varies a lot but you are usually swamped with work, so for the narcissists looking to constantly improve themselves this is the kind of job you are looking for. The Interview was very fit based and had some basic technical but knowledge of excel and powerpoint are emphasized. Some of the people in the group have worked in the industry for many years and are very knowledgeable about hte space so it is a great opportunity ot learn,

    The role of the group within the company is very much the client interaction and provide reporting and constant updates on the company and its current investments. Also you are partnered with the Capital Markets team which is a space KKR is expanding in so you get exposure the the investment banking knowledge of an IPO process and marketing companies. As well as the debt restructuring which is very important in an industry reliant financial leverage.

    Cons

    The work is very sporadic and sometimes your lose a work life balance. Although the group itself can be fun the work can be slightly mundane at times.

    Advice to Management

    Amongst the current reorganization, you need to define peoples roles going forward more so they can prepare in advance of the change.
