Hi everyone, I would like to know more about the REPM team at BX, I have seen only a couple of past threads (best one so far from from Mshang862) on that specific role but I feel there are not consistent answers there. First of all, can it be confirmed whether this team is a FO within BX? Also, what...

Heya everyone! I applied to Blackstone's mid-year analyst class about a month ago. Completed both the pymetrics game and one way interview, but haven't heard anything since. Just wanted to check in if others are in the same situation. Campus recruiting vaguely said that decisions should "come soon".

I'm curious about the GSO group within Blackstone - does anyone have any information regarding similarities/dissimilarities to the main PE groups at Blackstone? I'd also be interested in the different teams within the group, comp, hours, and the sort of work that the group does. Thanks!

Starting entry level at a Tier 2/3 consulting firm in a few weeks (eg. Deloitte/Accenture). My ultimate goal is to work for 2/3 years---->M7 MBA---->MBB---->PE portfolio consulting (eg. KKR Capstone/TPG ops group/Bain Cap portfolio group/Blackstone??....likely forgetting a few others) Does anyone...

Hey everyone! I just wanted to know if anyone knows about the MAI Analyst program at Blackstone? Please correct me if I am wrong but from what I understand - MAI falls under the PWM division. It is focused on helping raise capital from existing and new clients and providing them with the different...

Dear all, I want to apply either to the PE or the Tac Opps analyst program, can somebody give me a friendly advice on my cover letter? (I have a PE background but I also invest on a personal basis) Thanks!

Hi, I was curious if anyone could provide insight on their personal experiences when interviewing at Blackstone as an undergraduate? The interview I have is specifically for a summer internship next year but any advice is welcome. General questions I have: - What groups did you interview for? - What...

Mod Note (Andy) - as the year comes to an end we're reposting the top discussions from 2015, this one ranks #33 and was originally posted 6/9/2015. I've been searching info about these guys for a while now. There are few threads on WSO with some insight, but still pretty limited; best source...

So I'm a senior in the last year of my liberal arts career with a 2.9 GPA majoring in Sustainable business with little to no experience in finance and wasn't able to land an internship of interest such as Blackstone group and several other firms in my junior year. Simply because I had a horrible...

Has anyone heard back from Blackstone about their Private Equity internship and been given a first round interview? I'm curious whether they already contacted people or not.

Hey guys, I have two first round phone interviews with Blackstone this week (SA positions) and am hoping to get some insight. One is for their Alternative Asset Management Group (BAAM - hedge fund solutions) and the other is for Real Estate Debt Strategies (BREDS). Has anyone interviewed with either...
25 Jan 2016
As requested by @MBAGrad2015" in my previous post (about GSO) and several other users who pm-ed me about BAAM, I decided to start another "demystifying" thread - the Blackstone's 2014 Hedge Fund Solutions (BAAM) overview. All is based on few recent presentations that I was able to gather. Again, I'd...

Hi, Does anyone have knowledge of the progression at Blackstone PE, London? I have seen people with 2/3yrs experience at a top bank join Blackstone as an analyst (the same as people who join straight out of undergraduate), why do these people with significant experience not join as associate? Thanks

Anyone heard back from the phone interview for the Blackstone 6 month PE internship in London?
11 Mar 2015
The final week of February has proven to be an interesting week for the finance and business news. One interesting topic is about how Blackstone Group is looking into becoming the next Berkshire Hathaway. Blackstone's private-equity head, Jeff Baratta, has been in talks with its biggest investors...

Seems that a job opening at Blackstone doesn't go unnoticed: an Associate position @ the BX Charitable Foundation gathered 2,142 applicants (and counting) from LinkedIn alone https://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/17010382. If it is safe to assume at least that many from other sources, there might be...

Hi all, I'm desperately hoping to land a Blackstone hedge fund solutions summer internship for the Summer 2015. Unfortunately I come from a non target, however still a very selective liberal arts school and only have a 3.4 GPA. However a very close family friend of mine is a senior managing director...

Does anyone know if Blackstone GSO works with headhunters? Found some old posts on them, but curious about Summer 2014 and Summer 2015.

I've been trying to figure out how to best prepare for Blackstone Advisory FT interviews, but all I've been able to find is general advice stating the interviews are among the most technical on the Street. Does highly technical mean I should have taken an Advanced corporate finance or similar course...
19 Apr 2014
This is my first post on WSO after lurking for 2-3 years and I appreciate the insight/opinions in advance. For FT opportunities and PE exit opps, which option is better? Can you please provide some specific examples if possible? Thanks!
06 Apr 2014
Does anybody have experience and insights with this? Not really sure what to expect except for hardcore technicals etc. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
06 Mar 2014
Pretty impressive year for Mssrs Schwarzman, Rubenstein etc. Any thoughts, monkeys?
02 Mar 2014
Fellow Monkeys, I have a very special Q&A to share with you all tonight! I had the pleasure of sitting down with John Morris and David Carey to discuss their book- King of Capital: The Remarkable Rise, Fall, and Rise again of Steve Schwarzman and Blackstone. I highly recommend King of Capital to...
04 May 2012
Not Henry Kravis, no, not David Rubenstein either, but actually, Steve Schwarzman is the King of Capital. So, why does Blackstone's founder get the ostentatious title of being the King of Capital? Well, plainly, because he just is the exact Master of the Universe that we would all expect him to be....

So Blackstone have raised over $6 billion for their latest REPE fund and are targeting $10 billion by the end of their fund-raising. It seems like Jon Gray and his guys are operating on a different scale to their competitors. Do you guys seen anyone giving them a run for their money? either from the...

What would an internship here mean on a resume? Does it carry any weight of the brand with P/E firms, etc., etc.... Thanks,

Gentlemen, Does anyone have ANY idea where I could get my hands on the old KKR prospectus for their Houdaille Industries LBO? Any leads would be appreciated!

Wondering what the interview process is like for FT Recruiting? (Very technical? Very fit?) And also, how big is the M&A Advisory group in NY? What is the culture/hours like? Tried doing a search, but couldn't find much. Thanks in advance.
11 Aug 2011
I was just shown this site by a friend. With the amount of misinformation on here, I thought it reasonable to field some questions while I'm on vacation. My background is two years at JPM SLF and now finishing my first year at Blackstone. I'm happy to answer anything about the process, lifestyle,...
06 Jun 2011
Can anyone tell me more about this? I am concerned because there are fewer than 20 interview slots (far less than most other positions, not sure why?) and there is no GPA minimum or anything. Is this a legit internship? Any idea what an interview for this position would be (with whom, what technical...
