    I have been working at StepStone Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Talented group of professionals, entrepreneurial and collaborative culture, strong track record of growth, reasonable hours, good access to senior professionals.

    Cons

    Negatives are fairly modest but are natural part of growing pains: staffing levels, maintaining company culture, etc.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at StepStone Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The snacks and the area the office is located

    Cons

    Very high turnover based on the extremely toxic work culture. There is no way this company should have this high of a rating based on employee sentiment. Low pay and overworked. No opportunities for growth here. I would only take a job here if it is your only option.

    Advice to Management

    New leadership in SPAR department is awful.
