I love the work environment and comradery at William Blair. Also, you get great client exposure and responsibility as a junior banker.

The firm's name isn't as recognizable outisde of Chicago or financial circles.

I was pleasantly surprised by the firm's work-life balance and everyone turned out to be just as nice as they were in interviews - no drama and nothing snooty.
