    Pros

    Great View of the Mountains from the Office, however, that was pretty much the only benefit to working there. Good experience in a niche investment community.

    Cons

    The senior management team is unresponsive to employees, and while they may stress how much they care, they do not. Your time is a commodity and they'll take advantage of you.

    Beware - Do your due diligence before joining, knowing your tenure will be short.

    Pros

    An opportunity to work with smart people on a variety of issues to gain broader private equity experience. The company runs very lean, so you get involved in every aspect of acquisitions and divestitures (great hands on experience).

    Cons

    Small family owned business that tries to project itself as being a larger player, however lacks liquidity. Does not have a clear strategic direction, but views itself as opportunistic. Compensation is below industry norms and bonus is subjective, not tied to metrics, and can be voided is business conditions merit. Turnover is significant averaging 30%-40% annually.

    Pros

    Interesting, fast-paced environment with the opportunity to work with many talented, experienced, very smart people. They look at hundreds of deals (maybe an exaggeration) but as many as they can find to cull them down to the few that they spend extra time and effort on. Objectives -- such as returns, risk profile, type of asset, etc. -- seem to be moving targets. The plus is that there's exposure to a lot of different types of transactions.

    Cons

    Total employee count seems to vary between 90 - 120. Like many investment companies, right-sizing of staff is on-going. There is a cadre of people -- maybe 30, if that many -- who are long-time employees. The tenure for most others is usually 1.5 to 2.5 years. Even with that, as the target 'market' changes, more tenured employees are fired also. In the past few years, many people who had been with the company 5 to 10 years or longer were shown the exit. As mentioned in another review, this is a very closely held company -- mostly family. It's understandable that budgets and staff counts are adjusted to ensure that the company survives (mostly for the benefit of the family and, to some extent, the cadre). Other con is that you will have little decision making authority. Any decision that has a dollar sign associated with it is made by one or more of the top 3 or 4 people. Before you even interview (which is a mind-numbing process all its own), scan LinkedIn and other sites and count how many Republic alumni there are. Many, many for such a small company.
