    Pros

    Since it is a small shop, you have a good opportunity to learn and progress within the firm. Less bureaucracy than other shops.

    Cons

    If there are no deals going on, work can be really boring and compensation will be hit hard. Smaller groups compared to other firms so less opportunity to grow network.

    Advice to Management

    Please work hard for deal flows. If there are no deal flows, please help in assigning more meaningful tasks. Thank you.

    Pros

    Working on smaller middle-market deals means your work during the transaction has an impact. You have the opportunity to speak to the senior management of the client companies.

    Cons

    The senior bankers are not supportive of work-life balance AT ALL. Very political corporate culture. Not very supportive of women.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate culture is the main problem I have with the firm but it is something that is difficult to fix.
