Pros

Great place to start your career and learn finance. Met some of the smartest people I know at this firm. Strong reputation.

Typical of IB. Long hours - seemed excessive/unnecessary at times. Hours seemed longer than they were for friends at other IBs

    Pros

    - industry leader in creditor-side restructurings
    - good opportunities to get promoted to mid-level
    - decent pay considering better work-life balance in LA vs NY

    Cons

    - limited exit opportunities given lack of brand recognition (restructuring analysts tend to get hired by credit hedge funds, but tough to break into PE, VC, and equity HF)
    - some tough characters to work for
