Blackstone Technology is a great place to work, the job is demanding and at times its hard to balance work/social life but it's extremely rewarding.

Executive in Technology
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Pride in who we are, knowledge that we work for a prestigious firm, compensation, very nimble, can do anything


Downers

We don't hire full time resources in technology, almost all hires over the past 8 years have been consultants


Comments

Very flat organization, everyone is expected to do the "dirty work" at times, you'll be surrounded by excellence which will challenge you to get better each and every day, you'll be stretched, rewarded and be a member of one of the best firms on the planet.
