    I worked at KKR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch, internship is good but repetitive, not sure what else to say with burn and churn mentality and knowing you just low cost slave and know they don’t convert interns to full time.

    Cons

    Many cons as you are part of temporary workforce and not part of organization and difficult to get full time job here.

    Advice to Management

    Out of touch

    Great culture, compensation is good, people really try hard to be fair and collaborate well across businesses

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make the firm feel younger and more modern and pay attention to work-life balance. The succession process is going great with Joe and Scott now running the firm day-to-day - that should continue with younger partners stepping into more important roles to build the KKR of 2050.
