    I have been working at Houlihan Lokey full-time


    I like the collaborative nature of the group. There is a good mix of people who have been there 8+years as well as new comers. This serves the benefit of really understanding the Business needs and delivering what the users need while bringing in fresh ideas. This is an operational team and the focus is on making our users' job easier and ensuring our operations are running smoothly. You will not be bored here, there are plenty of challenging initiatives and good opportunity to go out of your comfort zone and expand your skill set. Management will be in the trenches with you and provide the support to make your projects successful. Top management is very approachable and encourages continuos education and research of new technologies. Overall, I enjoy the work and the team.


    Most likely the commute will not be great to this part of town, although it is a nice area to work in

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Houlihan Lokey (Century City, CA).


    Applied online. Scheduled for a phone interview with an associate. Very interview with basic questions (price a bond, walk me through DCF). Approx a week later scheduled an in person interview with two VPs with basic questions (walk me through DCF).
