Intern with External Relations Strategy Group (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 30, 2017
Blackstone is an amazing firm to work with as every single person I have met there has always greeted me with a smile, as well as reached their hands out to help and guide me. I have interned here and have learned so much to later help me in other positions I acquired, but must need to say, that the staff and environment is definitely one to grow in and learn much more.
Retention Supervisor/ Customer Service (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – January 21, 2017
I worked for the retention department of the company, where the object was to try to make our customers happy & convince them to stay with our services whether it was one of our prepaid calling card machines or our merchant service.
good day as long as you don't get rude visitors. I learned a lot about the community and their ways, and how to deal with the situation. Great co-workers. dealing with rude visitors and trying to meet their standards within the job. getting thru a day without rule infraction.
Cna (Former Employee) – Cincinnati ohio – September 16, 2016
Assisted elderly residents with everyday living activities, which included, light housekeeping and personal errand runs. I also paid great attention to detail by going above and beyond my call of duty to care for residents that required additional needs to be met.
Associate Vice President (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 23, 2016
There are a lot of very talented and smart people at Blackstone. The one area where there could be significant improvement is management's ability to recognize, develop, and promote talent from within the organization. Some departments are much better than others at this, but unfortunately I've seen some cases where management should be more attentive to their employees' development.
Very talented people
Management sometimes loses sight of the junior employees
Temporary Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 15, 2016
This place is a nightmare. You are expected to work 12 hour days without leaving the building. They justify this by buying you a $15 lunch that you have to eat at your desk. There is zero training and no support. Everyone is overworked and miserable in the support staff and fearful of loosing their jobs.

Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Batavia, OH – October 27, 2015
Great company to work for. I worked as a home health aid to provide services to senior citizens in their home environment so that they are able to stay home. I would help clients with personal care, errands, and home minor home cleaning to help aid in making life a little more manageable in daily life. I would also do respite for care givers who were caring for family members full time that had dementia and Alzheimers so that family members may be able to leave the home to work or go run errands and have time to get out of the home for personal reasons. company had very flexible scheduling based around clients and staff needs.
