Transparency from management which is getting better, Compensation structure (feels like research gets the short end of the stick).

FBR is a great place to work. Wall Street experience with the standard of living of Northern Virginia. FBR is a great place to cut your teeth in equity analysis and gives associates many opportunities to excel.

Uppers

Co-workers are excellent partners. Research quality is top notch. Banking pipeline is strong and have a unique skill set in private placements. Resources available to us and clients are better than larger bulge brackets and more insightful. Deal/primary is still paid out in monthly commissions.


Downers

Prefer commission to salary/bonus structure but still beats incentive packages at most firms.


Comments
