ProsOpportunity to see deal flow and gain similar skill sets of that of the bulge brackets. You are surrounded by smart people.

ConsLack of clear communication from management. It can be a bit of a sweat shop due to lack of support if you happen to be in a branch office location.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you plan to branch out to ancillary cities, be sure to equip those locations with an analyst or two. Also, don't be too quick to branch out as you did for purposes or portraying a national company for the IPO.
