Monarch Alternative - any info?

anyone have any info on these guys? they're mentioned in a few threads that list a number of distressed investors, but couldn't find any detailed info on their 1. strategy/rep 2. culture/hours, and 3. comp (their AUM is much lower than their peers and from what i can tell, they don't seem to run particularly lean). anyone familiar with them? any help would be appreciated
