    I have been working at Warburg Pincus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture of the company is inclusive and informal in the best way possible in the traditional business world of private equity. The company's senior management sets a tone for a culture of respect, incredibly intelligent work standard, and work ethic. The standard for exchange of information and ideas is really high at Warburg and employees feel inspired by interactions with management.

    Cons

    The firm is not fulfilling its potential in at least one area - keeping inefficient employees way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping the whole company involved and engaged into the future of this great place.

    I have been working at Warburg Pincus full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Very smart people working here. Great for the resume.

    Cons

    Poor management. Very bureaucratic. No growth opportunities. People stay their entire lives and hold on tight to their positions. Not open to change or constructive feedback. Poor work/life balance. They only invest in their analysts, offering a grad school program sponsoring them to be admitted to graduate school.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your back-office people. Also offer more internal seminars/workshops promoting professional growth and leadership.

    Pros

    Great culture and firm - focus on honesty, transparency and encorages people to speak up

    Cons

    Large and can sometimes be bureaucratic. You have to be politically well connected to move up the ranks

    Advice to Management

    Stick to core PE as opposed to diversifying away like peers. Warburg has not thought of going public which is one of the reasons they are able to effectively do what they do today
