Advice to Candidates

Cowen treats all their employees very well and trains them as if they will be there for their entire career which I think is very rare. Compensation is very good. Firms reputation becomes more prestigious by the year.

Advice to Candidates

in my group the workload can be heavy much of the time but everyone pitches in and our manager is the fairest person I've ever worked under, and works harder than anyone in the group. Everyone is a team player. I feel that my compensation is competitive. Vacation is relatively generous for a US firm,although not always easy to take at preferred times. I still am satisfied with it, however.
