    I worked at Starwood Capital (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible amount of responsibility for young employees, great training, work with really smart people. Highly competitive comp at the bottom of the pyramid and gets better and better as you go up.

    Cons

    Total "you can't sit here," wannabe intimidating mentality mixed in with a bunch of nerds who can't speak let alone connect with people. highly quant culture. Working in Greenwich is also depressing as hell. The culture is as bad as everyone says it is, but if you love real estate it is worth it for the training.

    Pros

    Really loved working here! Great people, great team, and culture.

    Cons

    No room to move up as an EA but that's pretty standard in finance jobs for EA's.

    Pros

    Starwood Capital Group is a really great internship to have if you are looking to explore the field of private investment real estate.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say about working at Starwood Capital Group. The people I worked at were incredibly helpful, especially to someone who has little finance knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management. I think the company is run very well and since I was an intern there, I don't have any advice for the management.
