Relative to the rest of banking, none. I'd only say volatile hours, which is true of every banking group.

Best culture, best compensation, strongest group, best exit opportunities. It doesn't get better.

Top exit opportunities, most learning and responsibility, good culture and fewer hours than competitors.

Unpredictable Hours, full suit and tie

Better hours than most places. More responsibility than other firms. Learn more with leaner deal teams and have the best exit opportunities on the street.
