April 2015 | Current Employee

Uppers

The salary is okay. The benefits are very good. The prestige is excellent.

Downers

The hours, the limit to upward mobility unless you are a banker. This is not a place for administrative people who have worked somewhere else before. It is ridiculously demanding and very unfair unless you jibe with their culture.

Comments

This is a great place for seasoned upper level finance professionals.

Executive in Restructuring

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Best Brand on the street. An incredible, collaborative culture that allows me to thrive and succeed to the best of my abilities. Great leadership at the top and Group Heads. Unlimited upside for career and comp.

Downers

With exhilaration comes long hours. But I choose to work them.

Comments

If you are the best and want the best, there is no better place on the street. Number one brand, culture and opportunity. Blackstone is merit based. Comp is merit based. There are limited politics. If you can make it in and have the desire, this is the place to be.
