    Pros

    Hellman and Friedman used a Ponzi scheme, which lures investors in by guaranteeing unusually high returns.

    Cons

    Horrible company. Should be investigated by american authorities.

    I worked at Hellman & Friedman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent and efficient colleagues, great compensation and benefits, generous performance-based bonus and 401k contributions

    Cons

    Very professional atmosphere without a lot of camaraderie amongst staff, clear social and professional divide between the more valued investment staff and the administrative staff.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate more community building and encourage socialization at the office and outside to improve employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Brilliant people, high integrity. Some of the best investors in the asset class.

    Cons

    It's intense, intellectual standards are extremely high, so required commitment is similarly high.
