Salt Lake City, UT | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

People, challenging work

Downers

Hours, lack of opportunity, diminishing prestige, shareholder priority over employees

I worked in a different group before industrials, it was great. Time since joining industrials hasn't been very good at all.

Entry-level in Mergers & Acquisitions | Salt Lake City, UT | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Fun people, good benefits

Downers

The Industrials group in the Investment Banking Division has a very toxic culture (driven by the seniors). ZERO second year analysts are staying within the group, and only ONE is staying within the firm.

Advice to Candidates

Any group besides IBD industrials is good. Workload is insane for a junior person, senior members are extremely inefficient and inconsiderate of a junior's time.
