Blackstone's Advisory practice sets itself apart by the high level of responsibility given to juniors, the extraordinary exposure to senior management and the quality of projects. Further, the work-life balance is very good for an investment banking firm and the culture and atmosphere is driven by excellence, while remaining human and friendly.

Lots of responsibility is placed on individuals at all levels of the firm, and if you're able to handle it, more will be given to you -- enhancing your experience here and your role on the team.

Demonstrate your genuine interest in working here and commitment to the job. We interview a lot of great candidates and the ones that stand out are those who have the right financial / technical acumen but also a strong desire to want to work at Blackstone

Most people are brilliant and team oriented. The firm is highly entrepreneurial.


Downers

The hours can be harsh.

To succeed at Blackstone, you must be internally driven to be the very best. If you are this type of person, Blackstone is an incredibly rewarding place to work. If you are not or are not confident in your technical skills, there are probably more suitable places to begin your career.
