Good place to work if you are a producer; questionable if you are support staff -- HR, IT, Marketing.

ProsRespected name in business
Mid-size, private company
HIGHLY encourage community and philanthropic involvement

ConsBenefits
Since unfortunate death of former CEO 2 years ago, firm is being managed by an executive committee
Since the firm is private and has many long time employees, many areas do not function as efficiently as they could; Need to spend more money on technology

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Culture changed after the passing of Jim.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Mesirow Financial full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Strong supporter of charities and local business development. Cons: Fragmented business structure, which only Jim was able to effectively manage. Current leadership team is lost without him. Selling the company… Advice to Senior Management: Fund of funds are likely a thing of the past and bankruptcy consulting was never a fit… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
