      Great Place to Work

      Pros

      Very motivated people. People want to win and succeed. The culture of excellence flows from top-down. If you are extremely driven and want to build a career, its a great place to work.

      Cons

      Its a mean and lean firm. You need to work hard to meet their standards and they won't accept mediocrity. Blackstone could also do better with hiring more diverse candidates. Although its a very respectful firm, they need to hire people from more diverse backgrounds.

      Incredibly high bar for work product - great place to learn what is exceptional.

      If you know the right people, its great. If not, hard work and effort mean nothing.

      Pros

      Smart people, good compensation, decent benefits. The firm likes and promotes a very edgy culture. They know how to make good deals and make money for the investors. The bankers are truly world class professionals. If you want to be in Private Equity or M & A, this is a great place for you.

      Cons

      Newish management in Finance has brought in a lot of people from a different firm who now run the place. People who were there before are being let go, overlooked for promotions, and have had their responsibilities moved to the newer people, leaving skilled people idle. If you aren't part of that club, you do not exist. Morale is low and although this has been brought to upper management and Human Resource's attention. The message is "leave if you don't like it." Communication from management is poor/nonexistent. Favoritism abounds and backstabbing is common. This used to be a place people were proud to say they worked. Not anymore.
