    I worked at Greenhill & Co. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smartest people in the business

    Cons

    Hard to advance. Greenhill's model is to hire senior people from outside and have juniors work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting from withing.

    Pros

    I met some lifelong friends there. Free gym in the office. Great location. Learned a lot.

    Cons

    There is a lack of appreciation, recognition, timely feedback, team building, training, and mentoring in some groups. Favoritism is obvious.

    I worked at Greenhill & Co. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience as an analyst at Greenhill. Worked with tons of smart people at all levels. Enjoyed focusing on M&A and restructuring. Had a few options for investment banks to work for but primarily selected Greenhill for it's company culture.

    Cons

    Brand name not as strong as GS/MS outside of Wall Street. Independent advisory model has some competitive disadvantages to investment banks with balance sheet.

    I worked at Greenhill & Co.

    Pros

    solid boutique investment bank with bulge bracket name recogniation on Wall Street
    good deal flow and high quality, smart co-workers

    Cons

    tough work / life balance (as expected in investment banking)
    small firm leads to uneven deal flow for the professionals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    slow down the hiring pace of Managing Directors and the expansion of offices. Focus on adding a few quality MDs vs. adding a large number.
