Pros

Worked with various desks. The staff was extremely nice and wanted to teach as much as possible. Had company wide teach-ins. There was a lot of events for interns.

Cons

Did not offer jobs to any intern in the Futures department and the program was missing structure in many parts.

    Pros

    Junior level employees given lots of challenging and meaningful work. Great exit opportunities. Excellent opportunity to work with intelligent and driven people.

    Cons

    Long hours as an analyst, but doable. Limited deal opportunities due to smaller balance sheet, but that is changing quickly fortunately.

  2. Equity research - Glad I got out when I did

    Pros

    -Serves as a good "boot camp" for people new to sell side
    -You will appreciate all future jobs much more
    -You learn the "red flags" of a work environment
    -Decent resume-builder

    Cons

    -Unending hours, not great pay under senior level
    -Absolutely no regard whatsoever for employees as human beings. Actually not exaggerating.
    -Zero, and I mean zero, HR supervision. Picture 1960's.
    -All the negatives of unvestment banking lifestyle but not the pay

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more about the people who are helping you make your money, even if it's just a "cost of doing business" like research. Or don't , but be honest about it.
