"The policies and the atmosphere here are employee centric, benefits out weigh anything offered by the market, it's a safe haven to express one's self. There are a lot of opportunities to grow and develop."
"The managers and senior leadership genuinely value and recognize each individual's contribution across all the levels, and offer opportunities for employees across the levels to step up and be involved in various exciting initiatives which is much appreciated. The workplace culture is also empowering and conducive, both from how we conduct business, present our milestones to investors, as well as the day-to-day work environment with networking opportunities internally and externally."
In Q4 2020, we launched the Ares Impact Award program which celebrates the inspiring work that individual team members do, often behind the scenes, which drive great benefits to the broader firm and enhance our culture of responsibility, collaboration and belonging. Every quarter, we will recognize two Ares team members who exemplify the firm’s core values (CREST): Collaborative, Responsible, Entrepreneurial, Self-Aware and Trustworthy. We will seek nominations for individuals who bring these core values to life in their daily actions and that help further our commitment to ESG, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and Philanthropy. The honorees are selected by a review committee and decisions are announced and celebrated through various channels including a note to the firm, Townhalls and our intranet.
Past recipients of the Ares Impact Awards have accomplished amazing work inside and outside of Ares and truly embody our core mission and values and deserve to be recognized.
Since our founding, Ares has endeavored to be a catalyst for positive societal change. We believe we can do well while doing good; that we can help shape and share in a better future. This is reflected in the way that we manage the firm and the way that we invest:
Our Purpose: We are a catalyst for shared prosperity and a better future.

"Our greatest assets are our culture and our team. Our success over the last 20 years has been driven in large part by our distinctive culture. While we are a mosaic of different backgrounds and experiences, we are unified and grounded in everything that we do by our shared values. Our culture is underpinned by living these core values each day."
