Entry-level in Mergers & Acquisitions

3.9 of 5 stars

Minneapolis, MN | 2012 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Culture, market leadership, middle market focus and the exposure that comes of it.

Downers

Broad definnition of middle market leads to a lot of dead end deals at the smaller end of the spectrum.

Comments

I chose this firm because it has an ideal mix of deal work. We work on sell-side and buy-side M&A, public and private equity offerings, restructurings, debt offerings, etc. There are few places you can work that give you such broad exposure to deals and deal structures. Also, the exposure to clients and senior bankers is invaluable to your career development.
