New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

High level of accountability and responsibility

Downers

M&A transactions are typically longer than the 10-week program, so interns are not able to see a deal unfold from start to finish

Start the recruiting process as early as possible. Networking is extremely important.

A realistic snapshot of the financial restructuring world in a laid back, nurturing environment

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working directly with knowledgeable industry veterans;
Working extremely hard, yet in a laid back atmosphere;
Becoming a part of the social network of the restructuring group;
Contributing to actual, high-profile engagements.

Downers

I felt as though experiences for different interns really varied depending on staffing. While I was fortunate to be staffed on high-profile, large deals, I felt as though others had a different experience if they were staffed on marketing or low-profile deals.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would come in with an open mind willing to work hard and learn. The internship may be somewhat overwhelming at first - restructuring is a very complex niche and as an intern there is a very steep learning curve. I would try to ask as many questions as I possibly could and overcommunicate with my deal teams.
