Frim that Truly Invests in Interns

5.0 of 5 stars

Irving, TX | December 2015 | FORMER INTERN

Uppers

They stress the firm really has a flat organization and it couldn't be more true, I talked, had meetings and worked with with Managing Directors and even partners of the firm. Access to senior leaders is readily available
The people I worked with were of the absolute highest quality. They always had time to help me and give me advice, as well as training. Some of the smartest people you will ever meet. It's a great balance of youth and experience.
The level of responsibility they give you as an intern is also very impressive. You are working on projects that have an impact on the firm and the way it operates.

Downers

Sometimes felt like I had a little too much free time but being an intern much of that is by design so you can schedule meetings and network around the firm.

Comments

Be yourself, know the firm, and depending on what division you want to go into know what is going on in the market, M&A deals, stock pitches etc..
But also realize the firm actively recruits from all majors and all schools, no one major is the golden ticket.

The best aspects of the internship were the exposure to the day-to-day life of the Securities division and the ability to interact with some of the best and brightest minds in the business.

I would have liked for the interns to be notified earlier about the placement for the first rotation.

Advice to Potential Interns

The internship is not easy - no matter what anyone else is saying no one is cruising. Don't be discouraged and continue to work hard and it will pay off in some manner.
