    Pros

    The corporate office offers many benefits to employees and opportunities for advancement. The Mesirow brand is well known in the Chicagoland area.

    Cons

    Working in a satellite office is not a good idea as we were excluded from many of the opportunities offered to corporate employees

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to include satellite offices in all opportunities. Many of the people working there feel excluded.

    Interview

    one phone interview with Senior Managing Director. Very strong conversation and talked extremely highly of the firm's dedication to helping interns learn the industry and work closely on new deals. Was particularly interested in why Public Finance was the department I was interested in over all others. Did not know care if I was strong at bond math initially or had had previous experience working with municipal bonds
