Downers

I get annoyed that Cowen is pronounced "COW-an". Our brand is growing but lack of brand awareness by those OUTSIDE of the street is frustrating.

Advice to Candidates

You should work here. You will work hard but your efforts will be worthwhile and the challenges will be rewarding. You will receive opportunity, runway for promotion and be rewarded for your performance based on meritocracy. You will not find better culture or a higher quality of people anywhere else on the street.
