Experienced in Mergers & Acquisitions
New York, NY | 2011 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Momentum, culture and entrepreneurial environment


Downers

Name recognition evolving, global network a work-in-progress


Comments

Refreshing ability to spend the vast majority of working hours with clients and on deals - unlike at most large firms where bureaucracy and form-filling increase by the day. Average age of MDs is younger than at most other places, and energy level is correspondingly higher. Fun to work at a place that is growing rather than shrinking or going sideways. Genuine partnership culture (only one P&L). Politics are limited and relatively transparent

my peers are excellent people, overall level of intelligence is high and you know you always have a chance to be involved in a big, headline-making deal


Downers

the hours are intense but i don't think it is much worse than other firms...we could use more resources for administrative tasks, we are still lean in support services


Comments

The job is challenging but continually intellectually satisfying. No day is the same as the last - exposure to senior MDs and live deals makes it a great place to work.

Comments

Overall, process has been very positive. Unlike some of my classmates, I've worked on a number of different deals, in a variety of sectors, in a variety of roles. I've also enjoyed the individuals that I've worked with. Needless to say, work consumes the majority of my time, but at least it's interesting and compelling.

People here are really active, ambitious and friendly and I love the fact that most people here seem like really close friends outside of work as well.


Downers

I don't like the hours, but I guess that's the nature of banking.
