Incredbily comprehensive internship program with wonderful training and great exposure to senior bankers

Hard Work Pays Off
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

A crash course in global finance
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Rewarding Summer Experience at a Boutique Investment Bank
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Yes

Work a lot
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Best aspect was the weekly homework because you were assured you would learn something.


Downers

My least favorite part of the internship is how impatient and unhappy people can get. I think there's a value in keeping one's problems to oneself.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think if you want to to work in banking and not get yelled at when you're at work you should work here. People are kind, they treat you with as much respect as you can expect, and they try their best to help you when they can. I think they are not very good at explaining "WHY" certain things happen in the workplace- such as why you're working on a project in one manner as opposed to another, so you're going to have to break down some barriers if you really want to learn something more valuable than how to put pictures on a page or link numbers between different excel tabs.


Advice to Management

I think they need to do more diversity inclusion in the workplace. This is not a very diverse setting and the fact that management is very hush hush about it makes that worse.


Would You Recommend

Yes
