Lean deal teams, opportunity to do meaningful work, significant interaction and learning from both junior and senior bankers, strong mentorship program, great office culture and firm vision
With the leaner deal teams and opportunity to perform meaningful work, the hours can be quite long. Definitely worth the longer hours though for a more fulfilling experience, better exposure to deals, and significant learning
Advice to Potential Interns
In my opinion, you get the best training and mentorship available, more meaningful deal experience, and a better firm culture and vision than any other opportunity can offer. The only reason not to come here is if you are not interested in investment banking and want to pursue a different line of work. However, if you are considering a career in investment banking, then this is the place to be.
Advice to Management
The overall experience was great and gave what I believe to be an accurate sense of what life as an analyst is like. The only downside is the hours, but it comes with the territory and is definitely worth the longer hours for the additional learning and better deal exposure you get here as compared to other firms.
