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.

Baird provides excellent training and development for analysts as they begin their careers in banking. It's people-first culture is also refreshing in an industry where this is typically a secondary concern.

Strong momentum in the business over the last 2 years. Has become a top middle market M&A firm. Combine that with an excellent culture and better lifestyle vs. competitors make Baird an ideal place.

Very good culture, all cash compensation, good work/life balance, good amount of responsiblity at junior level, impactful work

Downers

Overlooked for some work that falls tot he buldge brackets, limited ECM presence, quality of MBA candidates interest in middle market banking

Comments

I've worked at both bulge bracket and middle market firms. I personally think one has more impact on his/her clients at the middle market level at a junior level. The work/life balance is much better at a middle market firm. Also, middle market firms are more stable than bulge bracket firms so there isn't the constant risk of being let go. Overall working at a middle market bank is a more enjoyable expeirnece.

The people at your firm make the difference. You will be spending so much time with the people you work with, you should really make sure you that you get along with them and can see yourself spending many hours a week with them. This is especially true as the experience you will receive at most firms is comparable.
