    Really intelligent people across both research and sales groups lead to endlessly engaging, intellectual work for associates. Analysts are approachable and thoughtful, and are more apt to sleep under their desk to finish up a tough report rather than save it for the next day. This is best-in-class training for those that want to learn how to think about stocks and go into hedge funds. Pay is above average, benefits are good.


    Associates rarely become analysts, so their is little upward mobility. Analysts are typically specialists in their industry (operators, PhDs, consultants) before coming on board. Hours are very long, and tough. Associates take the brunt of the work load, and their is a constant flow of it.

    Advice to Management

    More possibility for upward mobility.

The company failed to mention all women had to wear skirts only and they provided (actually mandated) breakfast and lunch and you were never really able to leave the office until the end of work.
