Company culture, independence

Downers

Banking is a cyclical industry

Comments

We will be 100 years old in 1918. Over the 25 years I have been with the firm, we have kept our brand and our culture, even as we've grown much bigger and better.

Great place for self-starters. Firm provides the opportunity to take on more responsibility at a junior level then most firms on Wall Street

culture, compensation, work life balance

smaller firm, heavily weighted towards bio tech / life sciences

Comments

Great quality of life, relative to the typical investment banking stereotype. There is significant opportunity to explore different aspects of the firm, as long as you are successful and prove you are a performer.

Rewarding beyond my expectations.

Comments

I think Cowen is a great place to work and build a career. Management is very supportive of the department's efforts and works hard at providing feedback. In addition, the analysts in the department are encouraged to be supportive of each other's efforts. Not every analyst buys into it, but those that do work together and provide great product. The AOTC(R) product is highly regarded and well received by clients. I think they are great deep dives into important issues facing our industries.
