culture, diversity, commitment to quality
no cost of living adjustment for more expensive cities
This firm promotes a work/life balance, commitment to quality and encourages employees to have fun while being and advocate for the client and winning business.
Baird has a unique culture driven by it's Midwestern location and middle-market focus. The Company has a rich history in treating its employees well and is recogonized consistently for that. Also, being a private, employee-owned firm allows management to take a longer-term time horizon in business decisions, which benefis the Company versus its publicly-traded peers.
Great firm culture
Experience, intimately involved in processes
Need to have a passion for middle market banking. The interview process is competitive, but the people here are extremely nice and willing to speak with you outside the interview process.
The people are truly talented, intelligent, fun and friendly
Baird is constantly evolving and adapting to the economic environment which translates into a very steady deal flow and has never had a major lay-off in the history of the company.
Baird is filled with talented and respectful people who help eachother out for the success of individuals as well as the team.
Baird provides an outstanding platform to hone your investment banking skill set and prepare you for your next opportunity.
