      Growing PE Fund, with ton of opportunity for promotion...rare in PE industry

      Aug 24, 2020 - InvestmentProfessional

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opportunity for promotion - Firm is always growing, hence no "glass ceiling" you can find at independent PE funds Experience - Hugely active firm, great place to get myriad of looks at full suite of PE exp. Culture different by office, but MIA group is great - This is where all Sr. Mgmt is located Personal perks working for large fund - number of Investment Professionals have moved offices for personal/professional reasons, giving you additional flexibility while staying at the firm (i.e. NY to London, MIA to SF, SF to NYC, BOS, etc.)

      Cons

      Large PE fund w/ outside ownership, so it has definitely lost the entrepreneurial feel as it is run like a PE PortCo....focus on maximizing value for owners, not for MDs/employees at the fund.

      Office Manager Review

      Pros

      In the process of transitioning from WBB,INC to Serco. I loved the work atmosphere, culture and flexibility of WBB.. not so much Serco

      Cons

      I've found during this acquisition that Serco has been very disorganized and unprepared. Have been experiencing issues for months and a lot of micromanaging within the company.

      Incredibly High Turnover (Warning)

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Co-investment program - meal expense if working late which is usually the case

      Cons

      - Terrible culture: people will backstab you and throw you under the bus. MD's don't care about mentorship or teaching you - Incredibly high turnover at the associate, VP, Principal, MD level. Take a look through LinkedIn - Compensation (Base + Bonus) is BELOW market

      Rough place, but has potential

      Nov 2, 2020 - Finance 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Big name, looks good on your resume Fun people, there are a lot of friendly groups Free snacks, food and Uber allowance after 7pm Because of the structure of the department you get to learn and develop processes thoroughly New CFO is a great guy and genuinely wants to improve. Has changed in the past year what the previous one couldn't achieve in years

      Cons

      Although the firm advertises as a $40b Fund, there are a lot of small company problems and antiquated, 80s managing styles. The systems have been outdated for years and just recently are beginning to develop. Ironically, management is looking for staff to work less hours but they're in charge of their regular day to day plus implementation of new policies. Because of the outdated processes and bureaucracy there's a lot of inefficiency which leads to very long hours. NYC hours and culture, but Florida Pay. No 401k, benefits are expensive. Owners and top management have a very micro manage style. There are a lot of antiquated controls, which really dont serve a purpose and make work difficult. Employees are encouraged to speak up and recommend best practices, but no real change is done, or what does get implemented falls on the hands of current people. Simply put --employees want better pay and hours. This has created a lot of turnover.
