    I worked at The Blackstone Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot, there are many highly intelligent people here. If the people that count like you, you are in. Promotion decisions are not always made on merit, but on "who likes you." People without a rabbi, even good ones, will have to work harder to be noticed, if they are noticed at all.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure to work nights/weekends. Edgy culture is deliberate but overdone. Expected to be on email at all times and respond immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to show a little humanity, it won't kill you.
