No opinion of CEO

I worked at The Blackstone Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

professional atmosphere, people take their work seriously but generally get along with one another. Good work is recognized and politics not an issue at the junior level

Cons

Poor work life balance and difficult to advance higher as most hires are lateral from outside the firm. Training program is outsourced and generally not very good

Advice to Management

maintain culture as firm grows and expands

    Pros

    Well establish and funded. Good benefits. Smart people and great deal pipeline.

    Cons

    Stuffy attitudes and condescending at times. Overbearing workloads and hours.

    Advice to Management

    Try to empathize with staff more. Be more realistic concerning deliverables to avoid disappointment when unrealistic ones are not met.

    "Part-Time Admin Floater"

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at The Blackstone Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working part time the schedule is flexible. Most employees get a free lunch.

    Cons

    Work environment is demeaning to low level employees, the office sometimes feels like a throwback to the 50s - few women in top level positions, administrative assistants definitely treated like "secretaries."
