Very cyclical based on a quarterly timeline. There are slow periods followed by periods that are extremely busy. Expect regular fire drills.


The Carlyle Group will be successful as long as they keep attracting the best talent. If they are really going to compete with their peers, they need to improve the investor services side of the business. High-level management joined the firm when it was fast growing and nimble, so they are blind to the stagnation occurring. The firm attracts the best talent, now give them room and opportunities to grow!


I enjoyed going to work everyday.
