5.0 of 5 stars

Executive in Mergers & Acquisitions | San Francisco, CA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Collegial culture. Opportunity to assume significant responsiblity from day one. Tremendous learning opportunity through direct exposure to managing directors. High percentage of time working on deals rathr than pitches. Deal are usually large and complex.

Comments

You will receive an incredible amount of responsibility early in your career and work directly with experienced and successful managing directors in a highly collegial environment. You will spend most of your time working on deals rather than pitches and the deals will often be large and complex transactions. Analysts have a wide range of outstanding opportunities following their two years at Greenhill.

Great firm to start and end your banking career with. Lots of opportunity for those willing to put in the time and effort.
