Pros

This is a growing firm with many career opportunities. The work/life is challenging, but similar to other banks. In general, the quality of the people is excellent.

Cons

Since it's a new Company, many issues, like sharing information between groups has not been fully resolved. Also, the hours can be long for people not used to investment banking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very strong leadership that's built the business from scatch.

    Free coffee. Location, location, and location.

    Cons

    Jersey City location - Office enviroment too small. No bathroom on first floor. Must use bathroom in restaurant.

    One one hand almost everyone gets two monitors but on the other hand the most you afford for a stapler is $2.00.

    Pros

    Fraternal type of enviornment with a emphasis on hard work. At times, long hours and not much emphasis on facetime.

    Cons

    Could use some more structure but as the cmopany has a start-up type of feel, this is expected. Management is working rapidly to put in the necessary structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can be a bit more congenial and friendly to new recruits they have hired. Step out of the office a bit more and say hello!
