Most rewarding summer experience

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The office culture is fantastic, and there is a strong sense of Centerview community.

Downers

While there is no face time, the hours can still be fairly tough.

Advice to Potential Interns

In an industry where you may be seeing your team for twenty hours a day, who you are working with can make a world's difference. Office culture matters, and Centerview has a great one.

Lots to Learn, Great People: A Stellar Summer Experience

4.9 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people are incredible - Very normal / fun to spend time with who have a serious work hard play hard mentality, but they also invest in your learning and progress. The work you are given as an intern is interesting and a good representation of what it is like to be a full time analyst.

Downers

The unpredictability of the job is tough to learn to deal with. You have to be very flexible at all times

Advice to Potential Interns

At Centerview, you get a much more hands-on experience and more individual attention than at the bulge brackets, while being part of a collegiate culture and still having access to blue-chip clients.

Would You Recommend

Without a question the place to be in investment banking

4.7 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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

Downers

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.

Best firm to intern at for for investment banking

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Great junior and senior mentors, exposure to senior bankers, opportunity to work on interesting assignments

Downers

Hours were sometimes tough, but were on par with other banking internships

Advice to Potential Interns

Firm culture and being a good fit within the firm is the crucial factor for making internship decisions.

Incredible professional learning experience

4.5 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Incredible access to senior management, a lot of responsibility, great company culture, great deal flow

Downers

With lean teams and constant deal flow, hours could be hard at times.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be enthusiastic about every task, and be willing to learn.

Advice to Management

I thought that the experience was incredible overall. Could not ask for much more. I not only learned an incredible amount, but had a fun time and made great friends.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great culture, great experience, great bank

4.6 of 5 stars

Sitting in MD's office on day to day basis and getting great exposure to senior leadership.
Summer soccer league to really get to know the other bankers

Downers

Could have used more modeling experience

Advice to Potential Interns

Pays way above the street and has a great culture. I actually enjoyed the people I worked with, which I don't think is the case at every ibank (that's why I'm going back).

Advice to Management

More employee events. Give the summer interns a celebration at the end of the program.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Unmatched experience with client-facing projects.

4.5 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Great mentorship by senior management. Close-knit company culture. Plenty of resources to use to gain experience.

Downers

Longer hours than some other firms; hours seemed to be more variable than most shops.

Advice to Potential Interns

The interview process is a great indictor for whether someone will fit within the firm culture and strategic goals.

Advice to Management

Promotion could be based more on merit than tenure.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A Great Chance to Experience Being an Analyst Full Time

4.5 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Exposure to all levels of firm, including founding partners, and the nature of the work done -- highly stimulating

Downers

The fact that you are only there for a short time limits the amount you can really get involved -- it's a balance between exposure (which was great) and not becoming so integral that your departure tanks the project

Advice to Potential Interns

The key is to be really enthusiastic and hard-charging over the 10-week period. It sounds cliché, but every piece of work you do needs to be excellent. If you show an interest, the team at Centerview is really willing to teach you.

Advice to Management

I think greater clarity around exit opportunities would be helpful. Not as relevant to us as interns, but in making a full-time decision, it's important to know that you have the firm's backing in where you go. People do go on to great opportunities, but it could be more formal is all.
