Exposure to lower middle market
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,

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.
Probably not as much structure as a bulge bracket.

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. Landed a job in private equity due to experience gained at Imperial Capital. Growing firm and improving culture.
Generally smaller deals (lower middle market). Lack of market leading sector expertise outside of Security.

- 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
- 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 help4

Strong interaction with senior management and clients. High learning curve.
Working in this industry requires long hours.
