Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 8, 2015
Carlyle is a fantastic place to work with many great benefits and wonderful people. I have been here for almost 11 years and can say I have learned a great deal from all the employee training they provide. This is a very employee friendly company and although I love it here, I feel I need more of a challenge in my career.
benefits, wages, holiday parties, free lunches, many training sessions
Accounting Associate (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 17, 2015
The company overall is great company to work for if you are a recent graduate and love working in a fast pace accounting department. However, work long office hours often there until 12am or later during month closing and audit season. Co-workers are pleasant but not welcoming to new employees. Promotions can be awarded within the first year of working for company. But on the downside turnover with employees are high, most leaving within a 2 year time span.
Free lunches and dinners, upward mobility and growth potential
Service Desk, Help Desk Intern (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – June 2, 2015
Trouble shooting, running cables, imaging configuration, as well as setting up work stations for new hires and desk moves for current employees as you will see from the attached resume. I’ve built my career in a variety of roles and industries. Recently, I had the chance to take on the task of organizing and scheduling over 14 desk set ups in two days at my internship The Carlyle Group. I used my analyzing, Microsoft office and time management skills to get them all completed. Additionally, I used Outlook for emailing and to coordinate my projects, using the calendar and task functions to organize and complete my work on time. I use excel to keep record of all equipment in an inventory spread sheet I update daily. Keeping track of the highest volume of information, people, events, tasks and preferences without dropping ball.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 15, 2015
Working for the Carlyle was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot and I learned it very quickly. I was constantly on my feet assisting the office. A typical day consisted of me executing my daily tasks such as managing office supplies, greeting esteemed guests, managing travel calendars, booking conference rooms, managing mail, managing food and office supply websites based on demand in the office and more. On top of my daily requirements I was constantly assisting the teams on highly important projects through which I learned about each every facet of the office. The management was very helpful but also very demanding needing consistent and reliable assistance. My co-workers are wonderful and nice people.
IT Customer Support Technician (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – December 9, 2014
The Carlyle Group is a very good group company to work for overall. However, IT absolutely is horrible. A lot of backstabbing and the management is horrible. Follow-up on issues is virtually non-existent. Management degrades their employees right in front of others and more.
Executive Assistant to the CIO (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 14, 2013
The Carlyle Group employs hard working but fun individuals. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful to one another. They expect a lot out of you and pay/benefits are commiserate with their expectations.
Conservative work style with lots of surrounding knowledge

Staff Accountant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 9, 2012
Everyone is great to work with on the staff/senior/manager level; not so much above. The accountants in Partnership Accounting do the majority of the work, with no overtime, lower salaries and lower bonuses.
