4.9 of 5 stars

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

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fantastic experience with exposure to interesting engagements and the opportunity to work alongside the industry's leading bankers

- High levels of responsibility

- Significant exposure to senior bankers

- Great culture

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.

Uppers

I was afforded a great deal of freedom on a number of my assignments. The apprenticeship model creates a great sense of camaraderie and familiarity across levels. You really feel that your colleagues want to see you do well and are looking out for you.

Downers

Like any investment bank, the time commitment and unpredictable schedule are challenging. I would say that while this seems to be a bit better at PWP versus bulge bracket banks, it is still the most difficult aspect of the job.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be commercial and hungry. Reach out to as many bankers as you can, and seek out the experience that you want. This is absolutely an environment for self-starters.

Would You Recommend

Yes

4.3 of 5 stars

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
