Pros

Lots of deal flow Lots of pitching Long hours Good place to start if this is your best choice. Top of the middle market

Cons

Poor development - mid tier is very weak, you either come in knowing all the finance / accounting or you're out of luck. Can be annoying working for seniors with unreasonable demands who have no idea how to do what they're asking you to do.

    IT Dept is low expectations, low output. A few stars carry a lot of low contributing head count. Can be bureaucratic.

    Pros

    Potential career growth if you are willing to fight for it. Old guard (Equities) is ripe for shakeup if you have the guts and can play politics. (IT) Easy to fade into the low productivity curve and exert minimal effort. International opportunities.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt like a special education prison (IT) TPS reports can be a drag. A lot of hairy legacy processes.

    Advice to Management

    Richard Handler is sketchy, watchout !!!
