You will be expected to work a lot of hours, most of the time later than what is stated.

Entry-level in Restructuring
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Hours are pretty reasonable, work is very interesting, analysts are given tremendous responsibility.


Downers

The culture is on the decline, leadership does not understand how to motivate analysts at all, compensation has become tiered, benefit structure is on the decline


Comments

If I had to choose an investment banking program, I would choose the two Blackstone groups again over any other firm / group without thinking twice. If you get an offer here and you're serious about sticking around in the world of finance, you come here. The doors this place opens and the on-the-job training, level of responsibility, and complexity of work you get here are absolutely unparalleled anywhere else on the Street. The exit opportunities are really the absolute best. Every single analyst that leaves here gets a top-tier job. Analysts at the other good banks / groups (GS TMT, GS FIG, MS M&A, MS Media, Moelis, Evercore) also get great exits, but it's not EVERY SINGLE ANALYST.
