Overall a very good firm to work at. Rough around the edges in some areas but somewhere I'm happy to work.

Partner/Principal in Mergers & Acquisitions | New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Growing and doing well, strong leadership, can pay well when they have a good year. Good opportunities for self motivated bankers.

Downers

Topco and Adco are a drain on the company. Expenses too high.

Comments

Excellent boutique, in the top 5 boutiques in terms of prestige, has momentum. Small enough where an individual can matter.

Very slow progress to improve and grow, but painful experiencing the growing pains. Not enough career opportunities among industry groups.

2.4 of 5 stars

Mid-level in Corporate Finance | New York, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

competitive salary, formal training

Downers

the hours, the lack of diversity (female, LGBT, ethnic/racial), the callous attitude of senior leadership towards junior work life balance, limited career growth opportunities

Comments

The firm really needs to hire more senior and junior people - senior people to drive more deal activity, junior people to do more of the grunt work. Its "10 principles" feel false when there isn't transparency, a respect for people's personal lives and lack of diversity (except among the executive assistants). might be a good opportunity for analysts, but for associates and directors - think hard, maybe stay away.

Had high hopes, but was ultimately disappointed. The reality doesn't live up to the promise.

Downers

Firm is in a weird in-between. The wonderful culture that used to exist seems to be dying.

Comments

Very little emphasis on support in development unless you meet the right people on day one. Need to be lucky.

Great firm to work at
