    I have been working at Prospect Capital full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Aside from working with talented, smart, motivated individuals and top-notch leaders, Prospect offers great benefits, awesome outings and an overall flexible working environment. The company invests a lot of time and money into their workforce and every individual in the company, whether a MD or an Admin is treated with the same respect.

    Cons

    You will probably end up wearing many hats because there are no pigeon holes here.

    I worked at Prospect Capital full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I worked here for a year and it was a fantastic learning opportunity for myself. I was able to learn so much about the industry and the company. There are many staff perks such as a ski trip, fully stocked fridge, happy hours and staff social. What I thought was great, was the ability for junior staff to work closely with senior staff. This was great as it allowed me to build confidence working with more senior...

    I worked at Prospect Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good to get SEC Exposure

    Cons

    The culture at the firm needs a lot of improvement. All levels are stressed out. There are inefficient processes in place that are carried over from ages and no one was dare enough to point it out. The management is not transparent about their visions at all. They expect employees to sacrifice their personal time for work. I'd not recommend this firm to anyone as the culture is just toxic, too many politics. The management...

      Pros

      An open culture where results are recognized and rewarded. Employees have the ability to work on projects where their skills are best suited, alongside exposure to management. Senior professionals have access to some of the best credit opportunities in the business.

      Less structured divisions than large organizations. Dealflow can cause high expectations and long hours.

      Only work here if you have no other options.

      Cons

      Non-stop micromanaging, unprofessional, out of touch senior management who don't honor their agreements. Equipment is old, working conditions for mid-level and lower mangement are crowded, and run down.

      Advice to Management

      Learn how to treat your employees like professionals instead of children who need constant micromanaging. Keep your word regarding hiring agreements and get rid of toxic outdated policies like 360 reviews.
