Uppers

The culture - entrepreneurial and challenging.


Downers

Lack of true coordination amongst professionals.


Comments

If a candidate is solely looking for high pay, this is not the place to land. The firm offers a creative culture that is not back-stabbing and to many of us, that is a better fit.

Access to senior bankers and client interaction


Comments

This probably isn't the most sought after place to work, but you'll get a lot of experience with different deals, be given a good amount of responsibility, have the ability to work closely with clients and senior bankers, and work within a solid, friendly culture.

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.
