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.

Incredible Summer Experience for Passionate Interns Willing to Take On Responsibility
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I worked with senior bankers directly on both live projects and pitches. It was invaluable both technically and as a professional development opportunity.


Downers

There were homeworks during the internship. They were necessary, however were difficult to complete while staffed on live projects. That is the nature of the job, however.


Advice to Potential Interns

Won't be a great fit if you aren't willing to wear a few different hats and step up to the plate. You need to be willing to try things that you may or may not know how to do and be a quick learner.


Would You Recommend

Yes
