Fantastic work environment in a team-oriented firm with a relatively strong emphasis on life balance.

Summer Analyst (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsExcellent facilities (gym membership, free tickets, comp'd lunches, etc.), lots of contact with experienced coworkers and mentoring opportunities, great place to learn, really felt like a valuable part of the bank even at the analyst level, lots of help with building a career (and understanding that it will likely NOT be centered around Blair)

ConsLacks many of the advantages of a bigger bank (in terms of resources, compensation, brand power, etc.), some office politics (originating from the partnership and the power imbalance that it creates), limited prestige outside of the midwest

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