Good culture, relatively good work-life balance, good compensation
In my third year, I get exposure to clients and am able to take on more responsibility than mid-level members of competing banks.
Piper Jaffray is not well known for compensation and hiring policies lack a degree of meritocracy.
Because the associates are usually business school grads with no prior banking experience, working with them is often challenging.
culture of people, Research Dept. doing lots of survey, good conferences, good reputation
