  3. Moelis is a newer name on Wall Street but everyone knows what it is given the history of its senior folks. Great place.

    Pros

    Meritocracy, strong compensation, great exit (and promotion) opportunities and great deal-flow! Great place to work and its changed drastically for the better from its older days.

    Cons

    Hours are bad but that's an industry wide phenomenon and given its strong dealflow, hours will stay like this.

    Pros

    Great pay and a promising career path if you fit in their mold.

    Cons

    Even by banking standards, hours were very long for both bankers and back office. Average benefits. Lack of foresight by senior managers resulted in many fire drills.

    - Terrible hours, even by banking standards
    - Despite some big/marquee deals, most are of the smaller size and not as interesting
