Uppers

Type of transactions and clients get to work with on a daily basis


Downers

Run overly lean


Comments

Understanding of investment banking and type of experience that want to gain in career. The platform allows individuals to grow quickly since do not have a focus on hierarchies that delay development. However, this can be a bit overwhelming if not used to entrepreneurial culture.

Work with a strong core team.

Don't feel like there is much opportunity to move forward.


Comments

Be sure you are getting into an area where you can gain experience that will help you move your career forward here or outside of this firm. Also know what to expect for hours in that position as some positions will require you to work 60-80 hour weeks.

People want to get things right.


Downers

People are staggeringly risk-averse.


Comments

My company takes its fiduciary responsibilities to the customer very seriously. If you're in the business to squeeze the customer, go somewhere else. If you're looking for a good place to make money by helping others make money, you'll be all right.
