Differentiated culture, support for trying new ideas and taking risks, empathy is a core value of our firm

Not warm and fuzzy relationship with direct reports, difficult to break into a sales force who has been here for awhile

Advice to Candidates

I think Cowen is a great place that gives great experience. The culture is collegial and accountable, but no room for coasting.

The people are easy to get along with and generally reasonable

Downers

Outside of healthcare, Cowen does not have the brand name to compete with many other more well-known firms.

Advice to Candidates

You will have a lot of responsibility very early while working at Cowen. Those who are true self-starters can create great opportunities for themselves at Cowen and elsewhere after working at Cowen
