Large Cap Infrastructure Investing

I've read through the infrastructure AMA's and other posts on this forum which have been helpful, but I'm looking for a bit more detail on strategy and culture at the MF's within their infrastructure platform. There are a number of posts already on some of the infrastructure specific funds (i.e. GIP, Stonepeak, etc.) but I'm looking more at the Blackstone/KKR/Carlyle's of the world.

If anyone has any specific insights on these MF's in terms of their strategy, culture, recruitment process, etc. that would be great. As context I'm an Associate at a MM infrastructure fund and I'm thinking of recruiting off-cycle as a lateral.

IMO only a few of the MFs really play well in infra.  Would put Blackstone at the top (think they lost a lot of infra talent when Stonepeak spun out but still solid), followed by Apollo, then KKR, then Carlyle.  Can't speak to hours at KKR/Carlyle, but you'll work pretty hard at Blackstone and Apollo.  Worth noting that Blackstone's Tac Opps seems to do a lot of telecom/digital infra.
