        I have been working at The Carlyle Group full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Carlyle is not a death by meetings environment. It has clever and talented people who care about your success. The work is always interesting.

        Cons

        From a back office perspective, Carlyle is just big enough to need enterprise solutions in many areas, but small enough to not already have them in places.

        Advice to Management

        Be bold as you evolve the strategy.
