Downers

work life balance

Comments

Think long and hard about the differences between bulge bracket and independent investment banks. Independent banks focus almost entirely on M&A, that is a different beast than capital markets work, which a lot of large cap clients will likely rely on. One is not better than the other, it is about preference

Intellectual challenge, Hours, Progression

You'll become the best banker of all your peers by gaining twice the experience in half the time (but you'll need to hold on)

3.1 of 5 stars

Mid-level in Mergers & Acquisitions | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

A great amount of deal flow and building client relationships from year one

Downers

Top-down apathy toward junior banker development

Comments

From your first few months as an associate, you'll be interacting with clients directly and leading phone calls. Deal flow is so strong that all level of bankers are forced to punch above their weight. However, this can wear you down when you're sleeping four hours per night.

Can be extremely diffcult to find a group, break in, find mentors

The most tumultuous and stressful time of my life that paid me very well and boosted my resume

Compensation and Deal Flow

Downers

Culture and office management

Comments

Quality of life in the Houston office is non existent for most groups. Compensation and deal flow is great though. The senior bankers in the office are not good at managing people.

Lots of deals

Downers

Hours. Lack of quality work.

Comments

Pros: As an analyst my firm is top notch. Good training, good exit ops. Good pay for all levels.



Cons: For associates it is much worse. Vacations are not honored (I've opted out of two and had to cancel two). The work is dull, and best work and training goes to analysts. Associates frequently work much longer than analysts. No mentoring.
