    I worked at TPG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work due to the share size of the organization. Competitive salary for the area and reasonable work/life balance compared to similar roles in the rest of the industry.

    Cons

    Leadership strategy seems choppy at times. Firm technology was outdated prior to a massive tech upgrade. Sr. Management at the time seemed to have long tenures but maybe lacked outside experience for which to make parallels and draw industry insights.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at TPG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, and pretty competitive salaries. Great perks like daily catered lunches, commuter reimbursements, good location. The senior execs and management try hard and are well meaning.

    Cons

    Very “political” culture among the EA’s, lots of favoritism, lack of support from management, sink or swim environment based on the personal opinions of “professionals” you support (EA’s are most definitely considered the hired help here, not valued staff members.) No real training provided for the administrative staff; rather cold company culture; standards and policies that look good on paper but aren’t implemented or enforced in meaningful ways so that all employees benefit.

    I worked at TPG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good culture for a PE firm (most PE firms that feel very cutthroat) - Co-CEOs are great balance of celebral and easy-going - High quality brand name - Invested in diversity & inclusion efforts

    Cons

    - Sometimes feels like there's an endless churn of powerpoints and decks- could be more efficient - Like most large institutions, there's multiple layers of bureaucracy - Your career may feel stagnant if you don't have the right senior sponsorship - Easy for high achievers to feel burnt out / so-so achievers to skim by
