Uppers

Job security, ability to move be promoted from within, strong culture without typical NY ****, great positioning to prosper going forward.


Downers

Fighting against client biases to go with the bulge bracket.


Comments

Baird's outlook is much stronger than most of the bulge bracket firms. Don't be drawn just by the name on a business card.

Associates that have do not know what they're doing, but are very confident doing it. The second would be Friday 6:00pm staffing on buyer profiles / M&A idea books.

Recognize that this is just like any other investment bank from an analyst perspective.
