Pros- Lean firm, increased opportunities to take on additional responsibilities

Advice to Senior ManagementThe culture at AGC is generally what you are going to get at most boutique investment banks. There is clearly a "type" of candidate they are looking for when recruiting, either you fit the mold or you don't. In recent years turnover ratio has improved. My main recommendation would be to limit the busy work and try to focus the junior bankers on execution.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
