    Great experience. Extremely intelligent and personable people. Employees are some of the brightest in the industry.

    Summer Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe people are fantastic to work with. It is very easy to get along with them. They work extremely hard but are also a pleasure to work with.

    ConsIt may be difficult to learn if you are do not have a strong finance/accounting background. They work on very complicated deals and don't have much time if you are not qualified.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its all about the money, money, money.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood compensation. Food is provided. Can move up the ladder. You can learn a lot. Awesome location.

    ConsToughest work\life balance I've ever experienced. You're pretty much on email all week long. Long hours in the office. Most people are rude and think they are very important. No respect at times and try to push you down. Need to have a very, very thick skin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so rude. Being nice to your employees can go a long ways. Learn how to balance work and life on your employees. People are stressing everyday in there. Stop emailing on weekends. It makes the employee reply back even if its not important.

    Not for the faint of heart

    Finance Function (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- Higher Pay than industry average for comparable positions
    - Company has good reputation and brand name
    - Steep learning curve affords one with a tremendous learning experience

    Cons- Terrible work life balance. Employees expected to be on call around the clock and over the weekend.
    - Unrealistic expectations from senior management. Too often we have way too limited time to deal with the required asks
    - Type A Personalities throughout the firm in all departments and at all levels. Need extra thick skin to survive here

    Advice to Senior Management- Reign in all the nonsense and bureaucracy. We are a small company and don't need all this bureaucracy
    - A bit more humanity from senior management. Expectation to be constantly on call evenings and weekends can seriously grind out a person's stamina

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Old school finance co., looking to own your life

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsComplimentary breakfast and lunch, cars home if working past 8pm, dinner if working late as well. Standard IB stuff.

    ConsVery bureaucratic, old school style of management
    Tough work/life balance
    Leaving the office during the day is highly discouraged except for meetings with externals
    HR is run by a sorority-like team

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times and make better use of technology to keep your employees connected. Create more firm-wide events that boost employee morale. Stop holding all employees on a time leash.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
