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.

Comments

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.
