Great place to work at post-college

4.1 of 5 stars

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

Uppers

Great work / life balance, firm culture, deal experience and competitive compensation

Downers

Can put in a lot of time doing pointless tasks / work on pitches that we would never win

Comments

We work hard but don't work as hard as many of the major investment banks. The office atmosphere is very collegial and analysts are a close-knit group

Great entry level job providing solid finance foundation

4.2 of 5 stars

Great culture and good hours. People are very intelligent and there's plenty of opportunities to interact with clients.

Downers

Not as much name recognition, especially outside of New York City.

Comments

Quality of life is probably as good as it gets in banking. Future analysts will likely work across many different sectors as everyone comes in as generalists and the firm is expanding.

Overall, very enjoyable experiance and have learned a lot

PJSC offers the chance for one's hard work and intelligence to show and pay off in a way impossible within a sluggish bulge infrastructure

I love the amount of responsibility I am given over projects, which has increased my confidence in exit opportunities and day-to-day work life. Additionally, having the chance to work among other top graduates who I actually consider friends in and out of the office was not an expected plus.

Downers

From a pure name familiarity factor, I used to work at a bulge bracket bank of far less quality than PJSC, yet the name was much more familiar in public. While PJSC is very well known and respected among its client base and other banks, I personally feel it does not carry the universal name it deserves.

First boutique on Wall Street where MDs really do care about clients.

Peter S, Marc C and mark B. Also free sodas and snacks provides west coast / Bloomberg feel.

Downers

Not enough Mark Bs.

One of the strongest cultures on the street, hands-down the best work-life balance on the street, and the opportunity to work with some many prestigous retail clients.

Culture is number 1. Compensation is number 2.

Downers

Since it is smaller than some boutiques the workflow can be more choppy. Sometimes you will be overwhelmed with work and other times you may be bored.

Comments

If you are interested in retail, media and restructuring I'm not sure that you could find a better place to begin your career.
