5.0 of 5 stars

Personal and Intellectual Development: A summer of continuing education
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Incredible exposure to senior partners on a personal level. Close-knit community that fosters teamwork. Environment fosters cooperation, not competition.


Downers

Long hours, but I guess it comes with the territory.


Advice to Potential Interns

You need to be smart, but also personable. To get the most out of this internship, you need to be able to interact with senior management. It is a small and nimble team. You need to be a team player.

An ideal way to begin my career in investment banking and learn as much as possible in 10 weeks.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone treated interns very well, and there were many events to facilitate interns in socializing with the firm. These included lunches with partners, a volunteer day, bowling night, and a Yankee game with Joe Perella. By the end of the summer, I felt that I had met the majority of junior bankers at the firm and many MDs and partners as well.


Downers

I have no major complaints, however there could have been more formalized ending on the last day of the internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think the quality of the people I worked with across all functions of the firm is the most important driver of my summer experience. The partners are super senior in their industries and it was a very unique experience to work with them as a rising senior. Since Perella is relatively small and nimble, that is something not many other firms can offer.

Work Hard; Play (kind of) Hard
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The training program is comprehensive and exposes you to many technical aspects of banking. The company facilitates the networking process, and it is easy to meet senior level bankers.


Downers

The work hours.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to do banking, this is a great place to be. We don't do capital raising though, so if you are interested in capital markets this is not the place for you.


Advice to Management

Every place has room for improvement, but, comparatively, Perella Weinberg does pretty well in all of these categories. The hours might be a little above average.


Would You Recommend

Yes

This is the best place to work for I banking. The work is interesting and challenging while the office culture is incredible and fun.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of this internship has been the culture of the firm, hands down. There isn't another place on the street that gives you this level of respect and responsiblity while holding each intern to incredibly high standards. Yes there is pressure to perform and expectations that go along with that but at the same time every single person is willing to help you out to make sure you understand what you are doing and put you in the best position to succeed.


Downers

There isn't anything I would complain about.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you lack the conviction and drive to push yourself to learn, perform, and suceed then this isn't the place for you. Perella takes the best and you'll quickly see the level of quality in the work of your peers and senior management. If you're view is that of you need to go to a bulge / universal full-service bank then you really need to do your diligence because you are overlooking a phenomenal place to work.

Fantastic experience with exposure to interesting engagements and the opportunity to work alongside the industry's leading bankers
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- Opportunity to work on interesting, complex and meaningful projects

- High levels of responsibility

- Significant exposure to senior bankers

- Great culture

- Generalist program (M&A/Restructuring)


Downers

Nothing comes to mind really. I've had a great summer experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great place to work if you want broad exposure to the investment banking business and want to get hands-on with the work. You'll have the opportunity to work with leading industry practitioners on exciting engagements. Deal teams are lean so this is a good fit for self-motivated, hard working individuals.

Adventure of Indiana Jones
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Hard Work Pays Off
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Exposure to experienced and talented bankers

Comprehensive training both before and during the summer

The people--PWP screens heavily for culture so you end up with highly talented and personable people


Downers

Hours were longer than most bulge brackets, but still nothing unmanageable


Advice to Potential Interns

Everyone here expects the best from you as baseline, what sets you apart is your ability exceed that default expectation. You will also be expected to engage with your fellow interns and the senior bankers and develop strong relationships. These are some of the most talented people on Wall Street, and you will have direct access to them. If you are unwilling to take that kind of initiative and only want a brand name on your resume for PE interviews, then go to a bulge bracket. However, if you want to be part of an entrepreneurial organization that engages and challenges you on a daily basis, there is no better place than PWP
