Piper pays well but doesn't care about its employees.

Investment Banking Associate (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsThe compensation and benefits are good. If you are in the midwest it is one of the few banks that is in MN so the location is good if that is where you want to be. IF you want a resume builder for the IB experience it is a decent place to be.

ConsAs with all investment banks right now layoffs are a huge concern Piper does not concern itself with its analysts or associates and barely concerns itself with vps and principals. I have seen layoffs at all levels. They don't give much effort to keeping even the good people. Senior management is not really concerned about mentoring and giving you tools to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild a team. Don't just use people for grunt work and then lay them off.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
