Decent experience, great way to learn the business/expectations/excel, very low pay

Intern (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

I worked at Avondale Partners as an intern for less than a year

Pros-It can be what you make of it
-The analysts are intelligent and helpful
-Great place to start to learn financial modeling
-Name looks good on a resume for when you will inevitably want to leave
-Good view of Nashville

Cons-Internship was unpaid, despite being a successful investment banking firm (some get a $1,200 stipend for the entire 10 week summer ~$2-3/hour)
-Morale is low
-Analysts are not paid well relative to competing firms
-Little respect/willingness to talk from higher-ups

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your analysts more.
Pay your interns on an hourly basis or at least give them decent training to make up for the lack of pay.
Be more aggressive as a firm.
