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.

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

Intense but rewarding with unparalleled learning opportunities

4.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Training and intensity of the expertise/ analysis partners are bringing to the table

Downers

The hours were intense, especially since most of my classmates in large banks had great work-life balance

Advice to Potential Interns

Come knowing that you will work extremely hard, will get paid above street and will learn a ton more than your colleagues at other firms

Advice to Management

Please focus more on staffing/ hiring more juniors

Would You Recommend

Yes

Perella Weinberg provides a tremendous learning environment on a rapidly growing platform

4.1 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

-Substantial responsibility: financial modeling, client interaction

-Healthy environment: non-competitive, friendly, professional, respectful

-Culture: team-oriented, everyone gets along, great intern events (formal and informal)

Downers

-Above Street-average hours (no weekend protections for summers). This is banking, however, and it's important to suck it up and realize you're at the best possible place to build a career

-Over-determined homework assignments

Advice to Potential Interns

Be enthusiastic and stay sharp and you will find success at PWP. Consider where the IB industry is headed. PWP is on a great trajectory, snapping up market-share from the bigger banks. It's a great place to build a career in banking, and the firm has plenty of connections to other opportunities.

Sample Interview Questions

Nothing too far out of the ordinary. Make sure you know what is appealing to you about the independent advisory model. Technicals can be more difficult than average.

Advice to Management

Re-align compensation to Wall Street (was higher than Street-average). Continue to make strides to improve the lives of junior bankers. Shorten the case studies given how busy interns were this summer.
