    I worked at King Street Capital Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You learn a lot working with the intelligent people there. Offer outstanding benefits, snacks, on-site gym with personal trainer and various company functions throughout the year. I met great people there and am still in touch with them.

    Cons

    It's a 50+hr week. Period. Strict professional environment. Very demanding. It will be your home, you're there all the time. Which is why they offer paid lunch, gym and all the snacks possible so that there is no need for you to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge all employees when the opportunity presents itself. They're missing out on their lives and family time to be there working FOR you.
