    I worked at Montagu Private Equity full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meritocratic, high reward for results and great ethics. The atmosphere is focussed on work rather than big social stuff. For me that’s a good thing. Everyone is friendly but aware that we are there for a purpose.

    Cons

    Doesn’t tolerate poor performance. Can be ruthless with slackers. Not a social club type of place. That’s not a bad thing in my view

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.


  2. "Pay's alright, but expect you to go above and beyond."

    I have been working at Montagu Private Equity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, nice offices subsidised gym membership, good annual bonus, phone provided, free Coke and biscuits, that is about it unfortunately

    Cons

    Very old fashioned management team, directors sit in individual offices so there is no office atmosphere whatsoever, most days you could hear s pin drop, place is micro managed by HR, no social culture, very male dominated

    Advice to Management

    Appreciated the hard working staff you have and give them some opportunity to be themselves, no one wants a business full of boring clones

    I have been working at Montagu Private Equity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working at Montagu Private Equity will gain you deep insights to international finance and the private equity industry in particular. Expect to develop your skills within financing, modelling and negotiation.

    Cons

    Montagu Private Equity is a highly emotional, prestigious and hierarchical employer led by CEO Jason Gatenby. Expect a working culture with uncertainty around decision making and regular change of heart. This is not an employer for anyone looking for individual responsibility or meritocracy.

    Pros

    Je ne reconnais pas la description de Montagu dans le dernier commentaire. J'ai travaillé là des années et j'ai trouvé qu'elle maintient les normes éthiques les plus élevées. C'est tout à fait une méritocratie et qui demande un grand engagement envers le

    Cons

    Attendez-vous à travailler dur mais à être bien récompensé pour votre succès. La firme a une stratégie d'investissement claire et réussie et elle est résolue à s'améliorer en continu. J'ai aimé en particulier l'Académie Montagu qui enseigne à Montagu des expériences spécifiques pour apprendre des erreurs et des succès du passé.

    La firme ne tolère pas de piètres performances de la part des individus.
