Pros – Compensation is aggressive and can be attractive in this middle market boutique investment banking firm in Houston Texas. Offices are very large.
Cons – Long hours, long long long long hours. Is there anything else to say really? This is a complete sweatshop at times.
Advice to Senior Management – Try to invest in your talent and don't be afraid of promoting people who are key performers. Lack of positive feedback in the office is a problem.
