    I have been working at The Carlyle Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    + Management focuses on making improving processes. When I first started the accounting department faced a lot of challenges, and over my 3 years here real improvements have been made. + A ton of opportunities for growth + Management is very open to suggestions and shows respect to all employees + Food is regularly provided + Great people to work with + End of year bonus is solid

    Cons

    - We are required to work some weekends and holidays - Could use more balance in work load; Certain times of the year are extremely busy while others are very slow

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting a positive work environment!
