Great environment to work. Baird hires people who care about the work they produce, but also about the other people with which they work.

Culture is truly a differentiating factor at Baird. Hours can be long but the people you work with make the difference.

Training under extremely talented bankers. Compensation. Culture.


Downers

To some, working at a middle market bank is a step down from a bulge bracket, and that may hurt job prospects down the road.


Comments

Baird is a great place to work. I hope prospective candidates join us and don't have stars in their eyes over going to the Street. The bulge bracket banks aren't the be all and end all. Baird's business model is tested and while our competitors contracted, Baird expanded and is positioned to be the best middle market investment bank in the world. We are well on our way. The outlook at Baird is strong.

No *sshole policy helps ensure that people are easy get along with; different culture than most banks.


Downers

As "victims of our own success", many of the junior bankers are heavily staffed; hours can be long due to high deal volume. On the flip side, getting great deal experience.


Comments

Most investment banks today look at their people as a cost line item. Baird doesn't. Illustratively, during the last economic pullback, very few people were laid off. Those who were had performance-related issues and the downturned simply accelerated their dismissal.

Baird looks to hire employees for the long-term. You must have a long-term view of your career and compensation in order to be satisfied here. If you're looking for a landing spot for the next 2 years, Baird likely isn't the place for you. But if you want to build a long-term career, the resources and support you receive at Baird are unparalled.
