Thoughts on KKR Credit? Prestige? Culture?

I work on the credit side at KKR. There is a culture of collaboration and a high level of respect among coworkers regardless of title. You will be pushed to your limits but also treated well. Also, nobody here cares about “prestige”.

I’ve interviewed there, and have a job at a direct comp credit arm, and know many people across Apollo, Blackstone, KKR, and Carlyle credit. I’d agree that nobody at any of these places cares about prestige, and they will hate you if they think that you think it’s a consideration. At most of these places, the culture is extremely relaxed, with negligible FaceTime compared to their PE counterparts. You can’t go wrong with any of them. They all get stuff done, with more of a focus on efficiency when compared to PE. If it’s direct lending, then be prepared for more slides & less efficiency at the junior level (and I’m sure you are junior based on the question).

What do you guess the culture is like?

Thanks you all for your replies and apologies for rubbing anyone wrongly. I think I misunderstand prestige. When I asked about prestige, I actually meant to ask, “what is the track record of credit investing at KKR”?

Hi P1, mind if I send you a message?

Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.

I was reached out to about a role that I was interested in pursuing but the recruiter said their base was 30k-40k lower than my range. However, recruiter came back 2 weeks later and said they can make it work and is interested in setting me up for interviews. In the mean time within those 2 weeks, I ended up accepting a role and started the new job. I would have taken the first job but don’t want to renege. What do I tell the first company so doors are left open for future if needs arise?
