Uppers

High level of responsibility, compensation, firm reputation, and internal resources.


Downers

Unstructured environment


Comments

The Blackstone experience is very different from a bulge brakcet experience. Think carefully about which type of environment you'd like to work in and talk to as many people as possible to inform your decision.

Blackstone is the best positioned financial institution globally. We have the broadest arrary of alternative investment products balanced by our advisory capabilities (M&A, restructuring, etc.) that help us perform through any economic environment. Additionally, Blackstone hires people that are "hungry" to make money and succeed.

Great other analysts

No real vacation days

Will get a lot more exposure than at a bulge bracket which leads to much better exit opportunities

Sets you up amazingly for post-banking jobs, hours are downright casual compared to bulge bracket banking, and you learn a ton.

Great culture. interesting, challenging and differentiated projects. Not your standard M&A shop - more of a solutions oriented corporate finance advisory practice.

Uppers

Opportunity to step-up into more senior roles on a deal. Opportunity to learn and grow into a better investor


Downers

Tough hours during the final stages of the deal process, but that is indicative of the industry rather than the firm


Comments

I have been very satisfied with my experience at Blackstone. Senior people in the group care about my career development and I feel like I have been able to excel at Blackstone.

Responsibility and Culture.


Downers

Hours.


Comments

Hours can be rough, but lots of responsibility and learning. Much more responsibility than what I've heard about other banks.
