    Pretty rigid hierarchical structure makes it tough to move from department to department.

    I worked at MSD Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Being associated with Dell's family office
    - Flexibility to work remotely if needed
    - Beautiful office overlooking Central Park

    Cons

    - People management ineffective
    - Employees can get burned on death march projects with fundamental leadership issues not addressed
    - Employee Turnover and light at building trusting long term relationships with employees
    - Everything is managed through confrontation and belittling
    - Lack of scale and growth strategy
    - Exodus of talent a consequence

    Advice to Management

    The inner circle is riddled with self-motivated people that are destroying the company. If your plan is to transition to a low quality firm with disgruntled employees, keep doing what you are doing! But it isn't all that difficult to simply treat your employees well and be upfront with them. Most everyone sees through all of the smoke and mirrors, so you aren't really helping yourselves by being deceitful.
