Great culture. Small company where everyone knows each other. Can get things done efficiently because there's no red tape.

Compensation was disappointing last year.

A lot of responsibility early on.


Downers

Healthcare dominates deal flow.


Comments

Compensation is line with the street and you will recieve opportunities to interview for similar jobs to those at the bulge bracket if you choose to pursue that path.

The firm has a lot of positive momentum and energy that has been built up after a significant period of turnover a few years ago. Communication is more open across the firm than it has been in my many years here

Culture. Couldn't think of a better place to work from a culture perspective


Downers

Compensation was down too much this past year and moral has suffered as a result


Comments

Cowen has a very strong Health Care group, but the business outlook for the other sectors is challenging. It's a great place to work, but be thoughtful about what group you're joining - not all are created equal. Also, expect the days of good compensation relative to the rest of the Street to be a thing of the past. Bonuses were down meaningfully in 2012 and outlook is bleak for 2013.
