Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The 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.

    Nice office. That's about it.

    The partners should close a deal once in a while and stop blaming it on the analysts.
