Pros

Instant legitimacy when talking to investment funds for the next step in your career. Morgan Stanley and Goldman are widely known as the 2 best firms by a longshot for analysts to start their financial careers

Cons

Being an investment banking analyst can feel like a glorified, overpaid personal assistant at times. 50% of your week is spent doing mindless activities that add little value to deals but is a product of the investment banking culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't treat this as a 2-3 year program. Invest more into the analysts, increase their quality of life, and groom them to stay with the company. The model of grinding people out keeps a particular type of person in banking... one that might not

    Poor salary. Little or no raises. No bonuses. Prospective employees should look else where.

    Pros

    Good colleagues working for low pay, under stressful and heavy work loads.

    Cons

    This is a company falling apart under current leadership. FAs are leaving in droves due to incompetent senior managers that created the industry's worst operating platform.

    The CEO is so worried about his legacy that he is fine with severely undercutting the employees pay, raises, and bonuses to pad the quartely reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees that are working hard to keep this rickety, leaking, ship afloat.

    Year after year of no raises or bonuses are unfair when you are taking home millions in bonuses.
