I worked at KKR full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very nice offices, good support system (admin and IT support, learning and development programs). The firm sets high expectations for all of its employees so it can be a very challenging environment, but a good opportunity for personal growth. Accomplishments are recognized. Good benefits and compensation.

Cons

Work/life balance can be difficult. There seems to be more red tape since the company went public several years ago. KKR has lost a bit of the boutique/family firm culture with their growth over the last 7 to 8 years.

    I worked at KKR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay, wonderful to have only one boss to report to, great benefits, beautiful offices, probably one of the best working environments I have had.

    Cons

    fast paced environment, must keep your cool with sometimes demanding executives, visiting executives (from other companies) can be a little more difficult to keep happy.

    Advice to Management

    small benefits keep the morale up.
