No opinion of CEO

I worked at William Blair as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent 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)

Cons

Lacks 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

    Stay private. Don't change the private/partnership structure.
