    I worked at The Blackstone Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Incredibly talented, hardworking and collaborative colleagues; Growth opportunities are created for those who work hard and demonstrate their value

    Cons

    The pace is very demanding - long hours are not only expected, but are the norm; As the company has continued to grow, the entrepreneurial mindset that set the firm apart from other large players in the alternative asset management space has diminished in middle and back office roles

    Pros

    Well run, filled with incredibly smart and hardworking people across all divisions and geographies. Great place to learn, build and develop a network for long future ahead

    Cons

    Not much downside. It's a high charging place so obviously there are long hours and high quality product is expected, but that's ultimately more of a positive than negative. just a great place
