Pros

Great People, Culture and Room for Advancement.

Cons

It no longer exists and compensation could have been better for all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too bad you didnt see this coming. I feel much more could have been done to avoid the obvious outcome.

    Pros

    Great advancement in the industry, lots of learning, steep learning curve if you like that. Everyone told me that investment banking was the way to go and I can definitely see why. You learn so much and a lot is expected of you right from the start. You are surrounded by very very very smart people and you can learn a lot from them too. Then there is also the pay. You get paid a lot for the hours that you put in and it looks amazing on your resume to have a company like this on there to speak for you.

    Cons

    The fact that you really have no time for your family and friends really takes a toll on your lfestyle. I was only an intern there but I didn't have much of a chance to see people I cared about or work out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback to junior people.
