Paid slavery, terrible work life balance

Come in with a low expectations regarding work life balance, but use the firm's connection / prestige to leverage a better private equity offer

2.6 of 5 stars

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.

Great analyst experience that will span a breadth of industries, however, work-life balance may not be ideal due to lean deal team structure

3.3 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Mergers & Acquisitions | New York, NY | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Lean deal team, exposure to senior management, compensation and prestige in the U.S.

Downers

Lack of brand name internationally, sporadic deal flow (sometimes lumpy), few transfer opportunities

Comments

The workload can be intense at times as analysts/associates will tend to work longer hours, while working on a live deal due to the lack of personnel. The compensation is very competitive/usually beats the Street.
