Very prestigious firm, great analyst experience as both restructuring and M&A. Extensive senior interaction and great mentorship program. Great exit opportunities to Private Equity and Hedge Funds.

The business outlook for our firm and variety of deals worked on


Downers

Limited outsourcing capabilities


Comments

Comparing notes with classmates who work in virtually every investment bank on the street, cannot be beat from purely a learning experience standpoint

The best work culture and people that I have heard of, especially compared to other firms


Downers

Hours - they are better than industry average, but just long in general


Comments

Great firm culture and unique access / relationships with experienced coworkers. The firm provides a unique experience to employees because of its generalist staffing structure; professionals working across different industries and in different deal types (M&A, restructuring, private capital).

Hours associated with deal flow

I believe that there is a lot of mis-information out about PWP, specifically on WSO. PWP does allow recruiters and places very well. I do not know of a single analyst looking for buyside that was unable to obtain a respectable offer, but many choose to go the HBS route. At the end of the day, if PWP does 8 major deals per year, every analyst is covered and compensation is never a complaint.

Great collegial culture, excellent deal experience, and all-cash compensation


Downers

As with any boutique, the back office support (IT, printing dept, etc.) is sub-par. No research department; all work is done by the analysts and associates


Comments

Make sure to meet as many employees as possible before deciding to accept any job offer. Try to envision what it would be like working long hours with these people and what type of projects they actually worked on in the past. Forget about the name of the firm, its prestige and everthing else. Simply try to guage whether you will be satisfied and happy on both a personal and a professional level with whatever firm you decide to join.

Focus on M&A and restructuring advisory. Much closer interaction with senior bankers and clients compared to larger firms.
