2013 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Very prestigious firm that gets invovled in many high profile transactions. Small firm culture allows for interaction with clients as well as senior bankers/founders.


Downers

Being a smaller firm, we don't cover all industries fully, but that is changing.


Comments

This is a great place to be an analyst, especially if you see yourself moving on to the buyside. PE and Hedge Funds know that they get the best candidates from "elite boutiques" and value the experience gained from working on small transaction teams with a lot of responsibility.
