Top notch indeed.

Thoughts about what sort of exit opps a job like this leads to?

Feb 25, 2014

Anyone know what the group specifically does?

errr...this is the group that oversees operational improvements of Blackstone's portfolio companies. I'm sure there's a lot of experience on the team at the senior level, but the comment about great exit opps was probably sarcastic

sorry to derail, but I've got a better question. do any of you guys have any thoughts regarding the exit opps for a private equity investment analyst at Blackstone? I know they're like, a great MF and all that, but I'm really looking for some answers on the exit opps. I really have a passion for exiting stuff and I want to make exiting a cornerstone of my career.

Find the Blackstone podcast, there are a couple episodes about the operations group. Basically they make portfolio businesses run better and will help in diligence.

I am interviewing for portfolio operations analyst. I am not on the finance side (no IB background / not my wheelhouse). I was reached out to interview for a new position in their PO division directly under a MD who has been tasked with rolling-out an enterprise-wide program that enables best practices for the portfolio companies. Can anyone gauge how prestigious this is? I really like this role, but my alternatives are in management consulting, which I feel will give me more fundamental skills. If my end goal is to go to Top 3 MBA programs in 3 years, should I do MC or pursue this role?

Very prestigious. They are tasked with driving value initiatives at the portfolio company level, so it is not the type of "operations" role you would find at a BB. The work is very similar to high level management and strategy consulting.

The team is about 40 people who generally come from top MBA and consulting firms. An analyst is expected to carry the grunt work of their assigned team for about 3 years and then go off and get an MBA. I would assume they place well into top 3 MBA programs.
