Young Banker Receives Industry-Leading Opportunity to Learn M&A with Rapidly Growing Perella Weinberg Partners

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Culture, differentiation of project types, personalities, ability to work with senior bankers closely, immediate responsibility, training

Downers

The community service project could have been improved with better senior banker attendance and an outdoor presence.

Advice to Potential Interns

When looking at different banks, keep in mind that the actual hands-on activities are the vital portion of your learning experience. At Perella Weinberg, simply due to the lower number of employees, interns have the ability to participate in many high level activities. If you're looking for a family feel, a firm filled with people that truly care in your development, Perella Weinberg would be an excellent fit for you.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about yourself.



What are the factors that contribute to enterprise value?



Can you walk me through a DCF?

Advice to Management

Perella Weinberg could be improved by having greater support for employees firm-wide to take time to help with various philanthropies. Additionally, it appears that training should be split geographically rather than having international employees trained in New York.

There wasn't anything wrong with the internship. Yes, you work a lot but that's what everybody should be looking for as they enter banking, especially an internship.

Expected to perform like and was treated similarly to a full-time analyst.

4.4 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Staffer made a strong effort to get the interns on live deals. Summer analysts were pretty much expected to perform like a full-time analysts; personally I was given no "filler" work whatsoever. Towards the end of the internship I was frequently the only analyst on a team, sometimes working directly for a director, so the exposure in that regard was great.

Downers

No significant cons.

Advice to Potential Interns

As an analyst at a boutique you will work on both the coverage and product side at the same time. As a result you will learn M&A or restructuring very well while maintaining flexibility across industries. At Perella Weinberg specifically, analysts start in a generalist pool and usually specialize in an industry (or in restructuring) about 6 months to a year in. There is no group placement process for summer analysts, so when you accept your offer you know exactly what you are getting into.

Sample Interview Questions

Accounting questions that involved effects on the three financial statements were very common.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An environment with some of the smartest people in the business, which could not be a better place to grow in

4.7 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Greater responsibilities and expectations than my peers from other banks reported. This also meant greater exposure to senior bankers. On a few projects, I would be the only analyst staffed and would work hand-in-hand with associates and directors, and even a partner at one point. There were also many opportunities to socialize with senior bankers, with an emphasis placed on meeting partners of the firm.

Downers

Hours and work life balance could be a challenge given the high expectations put on our class. That said, I never found myself overwhelmed or unable to cope.

Advice to Potential Interns

PWP has a very technical interview process and employs a small class. They expect a significant amount of technical knowledge and try to get the best candidates from the start.
