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

Top program that provides an opportunity to work on live transactions, rigorous training and exposure to founders / senior bankers
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Ability to work with a wide range of people throughout the firm and contribute on deals and pitches, leading training program that was ongoing throughout the summer, exposure to founder and senior bankers and well planned social events.

I did not get to see the full cycle of the transactions that I worked on. However, this will be the case at most internships given the short duration.

4.7 of 5 stars

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


Would You Recommend

Yes
