    * Compensation is fair and well thought out. Management has total open door policy to receive complaints about compensation or any other subject.
    * Colleagues are smart and collaborative. No one obsesses over "taking credit" for successes.
    * Junior professionals are able to interact directly with the most senior members of management. Transparency.
    * Prospect still has a "family" feel to it. People genuinely care about each other and try to help and support. The firm outings are well attended, and people get a lot out of them.


    * You have to make the most of your time here. You will have a mentor, but ultimately your own hunger to succeed will be the most important factor in your success at Prospect. No one is going to bring you success on a silver platter.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Prospect Capital (New York, NY (US)) in May 2015.


    The interview process consisted with me meeting with the tax director. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. The question I was asked were mostly about my experience and why I wanted to work in the tax department. I was also asked why I wanted to work at Prospect Capital.
