Pros

solid boutique investment bank with bulge bracket name recogniation on Wall Street good deal flow and high quality, smart co-workers

Cons

tough work / life balance (as expected in investment banking) small firm leads to uneven deal flow for the professionals

Advice to Management

slow down the hiring pace of Managing Directors and the expansion of offices. Focus on adding a few quality MDs vs. adding a large number.

    Pros

    Excellent work experience: blue-chip client base, high-profile deals, punches above its weight (proper competition for GS, MS, BAML etc.) Great people: collegiate atmosphere, small deal teams, lots of client exposure at early stage

    Cons

    Eroding culture: some high profile departures in last couple of years (particularly in the engine room at VP / Principal level) Career ladder: Scope for progression to MD internally limited vs. external hires Comp: flat performance over the last few years means that stock component of comp is very high

    Advice to Management

    Foster your mid-level staff & work on reinvigorating the culture - Greenhill used to be the best place to work in London investment banking, period. It no longer is.
