    Great company

    Sep 7, 2022 - Private Equity Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Really strong culture across the Company - as it relates to social responsibility, developing talent, working collaboratively across teams, etc. Even the most senior people (Henry and George) take a very active interest in more junior members. Despite being such a large organization, still has a “small team” feeling in Americas Private equity.

    Cons

    Nothing significant or worthy of noting.

    Benefits are the best around, free lunch, smart coworkers and great teamwork. Plenty of work HH and events to connect with coworkers aka friends.

    Like any firm it has its hierarchy politics and upper management doesn’t always hear what you are saying, but overall they do a good job.
