Strong comp, terrible culture

1.0 of 5 stars

January 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

- Strong comp compared to the street
- Some very intelligent senior bankers
- Compared to other boutiques you get to do more than just M&A

Downers

- Sweatshop - very long hours
- No development program for junior bankers
- It depends on the group, but most are incredibly political
- SMDs/MDs don't care about the junior staff
- They don't care about helping juniors find exit opps
- Work hard, work harder culture
- Junior bankers will often do a lot of admin work given how small some teams are

Advice to Candidates

It is not the worst bank on the street, and it could be a function of how new it is, but no one really cares about the junior bankers. There is no development, no engagement, nothing. Most senior guys just don't care about their juniors.

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

-Idea vs. financing led
-Culture is amazing
-Perks
-Pay
-Access to senior bankers
-Quality of new hires
-Full-time training program

Downers

-Really the only downer is that because it is a newer firm, not all sub-verticals are covered yet. SO if you're interested in a super-nichey sector, another bank might be better.

Advice to Candidates

-"We want to take all the good things we had at Bear Stearns and leave all the bad things behind."
-"We want to be an idea-generating firm, not a how can we finance you? firm"
-They're seeking to be the predominant independent (i.e. non-bank-holding-company) and will continue to build the brand through conscientious SMD hirings.
