      I have been working at Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors

      Pros

      Incredibly smart people who are really passionate about what they do. Great opportunities for upward mobility and senior management does a great job getting junior staff involved in deal processes and portfolio monitoring. The team is also very patient with junior members of the team and anyone including Partners is happy to pitch in on sourcing or deals when needed.

      Cons

      Associates are not typically staffed on deals but are expected to go out and find deals. This may take some getting used to especially if people are expecting a steady stream of deals to work on. However being actively involved in the process from start to finish is rewarding.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to grow the platform while maintaining the culture that has made it successful. Also make sure to continue to challenge Associates and Senior Associates to take on more responsibility.
