The people

Comments

Piper Jaffray is a great place to get a high level of responsibility, learn valuable skills, and have a good work / life balance for banking. Piper Jaffray does not have the name / brand recognition that the bulge bracket banks have.

Minneapolis, MN | 2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Culture, market leadership, middle market focus and the exposure that comes of it.

Downers

Broad definnition of middle market leads to a lot of dead end deals at the smaller end of the spectrum.

Comments

I chose this firm because it has an ideal mix of deal work. We work on sell-side and buy-side M&A, public and private equity offerings, restructurings, debt offerings, etc. There are few places you can work that give you such broad exposure to deals and deal structures. Also, the exposure to clients and senior bankers is invaluable to your career development.

People/culture, ability to impact results from early stage in your career, high quality client base

Lack of infrastructure

Comments

Premier middle market firm. Ability to execute a variety of deal types within an industry team is very valuable experience at an early stage in your career. Small teams require significant contribution from all team members. Great culture with a commitment to its people
