Advice to Candidates

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.
