4.6 of 5 stars
Date: 2013

High amount of exposure to ongoing and prospective deals and a high level of responsibility.


Uppers

Small deal teams - more responsibilities. Great culture. Lots of exposure to the full deal process. Small and cohesive intern class. Social events (of course).


Downers

Have fewer of some of the resources than the larger banks (24-hour printing and graphics)


Advice to Potential Interns

If you start out with good work (mostly error free with a decently smart approach), trust will build quickly and you'll be able to really dive deep into the deals and analysis. Also, you are able to meet a good chunk of the people. Even Partners are very approachable and are willing to take some time to chat with you.

Rewarding Summer Experience at a Boutique Investment Bank


Uppers

I think that the best aspect was the people -- I enjoyed working on all my teams. Everyone was incredibly friendly and relaxed.


Downers

The hours were probably the toughest part to get accustomed to, but they were not horrible and I learned to handle them better as the summer went on.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would just recommend to meet people in the organization if you plan on applying and PWP will visit your school. I think the friendly and relaxed attitudes of the bankers here will be pretty evident, even from a brief conversation.


Would You Recommend

Yes

A crash course in global finance


Uppers

Learning more than I could imagine and interacting with prominent investment bankers


Downers

It has been very stressful and I have had little time to carry on a life outside of the office


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a great experience and I would highly recommend it


Advice to Management

In terms of investment banking, Perella Weinberg Partners is a great place to work and is very reasonable in terms of what it expects from its employees. There is just no way to work at an investment bank and not work very long hours. There is honestly nothing Perella Weinberg Partners could do to improve in this regards. I have had a great time this summer.
