I have been working at Houlihan Lokey as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great people. They were not only smart but also fun to work with. I worked in the FAS group as an analyst intern and had a great experience. The only reason I didn't return was because of the location, yet my MD still wrote me a great recommendation letter and helped me get my current job.

Cons

The hours were long and you can never really know when you'll have to work late or come in on the weekends. But that's pretty standard in this line of work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on keepin' on.

    I worked at Houlihan Lokey full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Houlihan is a great place to start or continue your career. It is continually growing and has a great entrepreneurial culture. As a finance professional, you will work incredibly hard, but you will also have the opportunity to learn about and help companies in numerous industries. The people were the reason why I joined Houlihan over other companies and it was the reason I stayed there until going back to school.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard and challenge yourself. There will be nights that you don't go home and weeks where you do not see your family. That's the nature of the business. Know yourself and what you are looking for career wise before accepting an offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More compensation transparency and more morale building activities.
