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.

Comments

Prospective analysts should consider five main criteria when evaluating investment banking opportunities: 1) firm culture 2) work/life balance 3) learning opportunity and responsibility 4) compensation 5) exit opportunities. Blackstone is excellent across the board in all five categories
