    Work life balance was great for part time employees

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.

    I worked at TPG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The love bombing in the beginning is incredible. They rather torture you than fire you. There are some really nice people working there. Fosse is easy to learn.

    Cons

    No breaks at the front desk except to use the bathroom quickly. No empathy, no compassion, no humanity, no matter what happens, just say your sorry and that it will never happen again. No, shush, stop! They don't care. It's your fault. Your making a mountain out of a mole hill. Probably because your a dumb blonde or a woman as I've been told.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask your employees to ignore insulting, demoralizing, bullying coworkers and don't be one. Actually help your employees instead of putting the issue they are asking your help for back on them. Don't shut your employees down when they are in the middle of answering your question or trying to explain something. Don't gaslight and lie to your employees and cause more division between employees. Don't discuss employees or former employees personal private issues with your employees. You alone create the culture there every day.

    I worked at TPG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Know the right people and you'll be praised for photocopying

    Cons

    - Talented employees leave because of managers with limited 'TPG' only experience.
    - Politics trumps product no matter what you do.
    - Not sure they've heard the terms diversity hiring and glass ceiling. A few minority (both gender and race) hires don't make you a diverse workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure senior leadership (C- level and Sr. Director level) know the meaning of diversity. The nepotism and politics is hurting business. The vision and actions of the founders do not align with the way senior leadership based out of Fort Worth behaves.

    I worked at TPG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They supply great bonuses to their EA Staff.

    Cons

    The SF Office is a fashion show. If you are an EA with a family, they look down on you. You are of more value when you are young and fresh or older with older children that need less attention. They work you long hours and through lunch, so have it catered daily, but with no breaks. Its like a cattle call when its lunch time. They also pile work on you and don't ask how you are doing, and will continue until you go under with no remorse. Very cold environment. Not a great place for work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your EA Staff. Don't over work them. When I left, they hired two ppl to take my place! That should have been done before hand.
