Working in the investment banking division I found that the hours at this firm were amazing! It is all about getting quality work done and then going home. I loved the intern events that we had. We went to rooftop bars every two weeks, played golf, went bowling as group, and had an amazing party at the group head's house.
There wasn't much not too like at Houlihan Lokey. There could be a more formal mentoring process.
