Had 2 interviews with them last year in Toronto for Infra. From what I heard it's a sweatshop but pays good. Also, they are very centralized in Toronto with lot less employees in satelite offices and often send out analysts/associates in other offices (London, Santiago, etc.) for long period of times (like 5-6 months if staffing needs...).
Probably growing but not exponential growth, it's already pretty big.

First round was phone with HR, second round was in their office with a senior director from the infra group. Mostly talked about my experiences in the infra/finance sectors, then had some high level modelling questions, such as how would you finance/model an airport in XX region, what are the main risks. Third round was supposed to be a modelling case study in office. 4th round, meeting with some other team members and 5th more like drinks/social from what I understood.
I accepted another offer before going to 3rd round but sounded like a very long process.

I worked in the group for 4 years. The pay is 30%+ lower than equivalent private equity firms. From a culture standpoint, prepare for a worse experience than every other private equity firm. Expect to be treated poorly, work sweatshop hours, and continually move with 1 days notice to work in another office for 6+ months. Associates at the same level are paid at different base salaries. Women are paid less than men across the board, sometimes by a few thousand dollars less than men in their same class. The firm does not like hiring at true market positions and has had a lot of difficulty recruiting people, so they lie during the process. Senior associates, analysts and associates are all treated similarly in terms of actual job responsibilities versus the listed descriptions.

All the juniors hate their jobs, which is why they are not included in the interview process for incoming hires. Ask to speak with all of them before joining the firm.

Holds true for Toronto, London, and New York offices.
