      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Exposure to lower middle market

      Cons

      High attrition rate due to below market pay, lack of mentorship, poor upper management, lack of quality deal flow, will do a lot of business admin work, majority of deals are a waste of time,

        Former Intern, less than 1 year

        Recommend
        CEO Approval
        Business Outlook

        Pros

        I had a great experience working at this firm. Was hired as an intern after just graduating college and knowing very little about IB. Firm was extremely welcoming and helpful in bringing me up to speed. Whole team is very friendly and very motivated. Big focus on good culture all throughout the firm. As an intern/ analyst you get to work on deals from a variety of industries and get exposure to all types of deals (M&A to RX and everything in between). Beautiful office space right next to the Century City mall. MD's more than willing to sit down for lunch/dinner with juniors and share their knowledge/ advice. Great group of hard working people.

        Cons

        Probably not as much structure as a bulge bracket.

          Business Outlook

          Pros

          Total comp in line with street. Quality work life balance. A lot of responsibility given to analysts. Good amount of deal exposure in all facets of IB, including DCM, ECM, M&A.

          Generally smaller deals (lower middle market). Lack of market leading sector expertise outside of Security.

            Recommend
            CEO Approval
            Business Outlook

            Pros

            - Good actual deal flow, not just constant pitches - Good generalist program, opportunity to work on both M&A and leveraged finance deals - Collegial atmosphere - people generally aren't trying to work to death

            Cons

            - HR needs a serious upgrade - Better hiring practices, there needs to be a better structured hiring process that is on time with other investment banks - Understaffed at the jr level and HR's hiring abilities don't help

              Recruiting Coordinator

              Hello! I have two interviews, one tomorrow & another one on Friday. I'm preparing cause I feel that I'm not very good at them & I hate that. So, I'm researching, taking notes & praying a whole lot lol! Is it okay to refer to notes during an interview? Should I ask interviewer if it's okay? I wanna do my best & feel it'll help some ... a little more confidence I guess!

              What is a normal/common resume length for c2c/consultant roles in tech? What about a fte resume? My contract role resume used to be 5-6pages, this was 4years ago, prior to covid. Not sure if this is still a norm. Meanwhile my fte resume is concise, 2pages long. I have 10years of exp for reference.
