Surprisingly, the demanding 9-week internship flew by and the interns don't want to leave
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The group environment that I was in. Working long hours really didn't feel that long with the people that I was working with.

How unpredictable the work hours are. I had to come in on Saturdays/Sundays on an hours notice sometimes.

I love the company culture and the people that I met. Also, I definitely had a very unique experience in that I was often in the right place at the right time, so I got to meet a lot of really cool, high-up people.

One of the best places to launch a career in finance
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Closing a deal and seeing it on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.


Downers

Long hours at times, but that was to be expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you're actually passionate about the industry. While it's easy to get carried away focusing on the specific tasks you're assigned i.e. building a model, putting together a chart, it's important to grasp the big picture of the analysis itself - you're providing advice to multi billion dollar companies on what may be the most important transactions of their lives.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a class you did poorly in.

What are some ways a company can use excess cash?

Walk me through some ways you can value a company.

It could feel too competitive at times: not because a negative tone was set but simply because spots were very

Limited and the talent pool was great.
