    Good People, great work-life balance. compensation is above average.

    The last of the old private men's clubs. No new blood walking through the halls.

    Get new and eager 20+ year olds and liven the place up.

    Pros

    great payout, excellent people, they leave you alone if you want, this is a firm of qualified veterans, most professionals and many staff have 20, 30+ years in the business without any regulatory problems. More Wall Street firms would do well to emulate M&C.

    Cons

    There seems to be a slowly growing trend of wanting to act like a bank/trust company. This will kill M&C as the best producers will move on if it continues.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your core abilities, stop trying to institutionalize the business.

    Pros

    This company is the worse place I have ever work. Also the management and the CEO doesn't know what is going on in the company. Also the people that work there don't go to work with professional clothes. One women always has her chest hanging out every day. And the women that work there all talk behind every women's back.

    Cons

    I weren't get my worse friend to work at this company. The people that work there are all two faced.
    You can never learn anythng because they talk down to you like you don't know anything. Also the pay scale isn't worth go to work.

    Advice to Management

    You need to look intoyour company. And the way your employees dress. Someone of them think that they are going to the gym. Also one girl dresses like she is going to the beach . She is always showing off her chest.

    Pros

    Working at any kind of investment bank or investment management firm can do a lot to boost your resume, not to mention gain additional knowledge of the financial industry.

    Cons

    Don't get me wrong, I knew from the beginning that as an intern, I'd be doing grunt work for the most part. I don't mind working hard and I understand that interns are truly "the bottom of the barrel". However, the staff here are very rude. Another intern I'd never met also attested the same opinion. No one cares to know anything about you. I started work and no one gave me a second glance, let alone asked my name. There's a very old money, old boys type of feeling in this firm, which can be clearly seen as the majority of the employees are in their late 40s-late 50s. All of them Caucasian. And only men in senior management with most females being secretaries.

    The firm itself is disorganized. The hiring process was not clear at all, and later when I was let go due to company downsizing, the firing process was equally muddled. Strangely, I found out later that before I had been hired, there were interns that had been let go due to "company downsizing". If you can't afford people in the first place, why are you still hiring? Regarding actually work, I was never told anything about what it was that I was doing, merely, "Go do it."

    Advice to Management

    Hiring? Firing? Communication in the firm needs major work.
