    The golden rule does not apply

    Former Employee - IBD in New York, NY

    I worked at Morgan Joseph

    Pros

    Selective pros with some downsides...
    Some strong senior bankers across consumer, technology, media and healthcare
    Competent mid-level and junior staffs (for the most part)
    Name brand (eroding)
    Small firm (takes forever to get things done - how ironic)

    Cons

    Overly bureaucratic for small size
    Old fashioned and archaic senior management style - ineffective in finding new deal opportunities
    Too much concentration of power (typical of small firm but all partners should weigh-in)
    Not open or creative working environment (selective executives are quite narrow-minded)
    Protect "old-friends" mentality is detrimental to performance of firm and other competent bankers
    Unnecessarily pedantic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being overly concerned about what you don't know and let people do their jobs. Implementing administrative policies ad nauseam will not increase deal flow or enhance likelihood of closure. Start sourcing as seniors and feed to industry bankers. Embrace positive change as that does not reduce your authority rather enhances it because you will have more content employees. Technological innovation improves productivity. Finally, stop using revenue from competent bankers to support activities of those bankers who do not produce and are a drain on the business. This essentially equates to stealing from Peter to pay Paul. This is not the way to run an efficient and ethical business.

    Worst Investment Bank Ever

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Investment Banking - Junior Staff Member
    Former Employee - Investment Banking - Junior Staff Member

    I worked at Morgan Joseph full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can't really think of any positives here. Guess it is a job if you can't find anything else??? The senior management team is archaic. Benefits are terrible. IT team is very poor. Some good industry groups, but the organization is defined by incompetence.

    Cons

    Compensation is well below market as a junior employee resulting in extremely low employee morale and high turnover. Financial Restructuring Group in Atlanta has worst reputation for paying below market bonuses to junior employees. Work life balance is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate entire organization. Provide employees accurate feedback and market levels of compensation.

    OK, but there are better IBs out there

    Pros

    small and entrepreneurial. Ability to have a degree of autonomy.

    Cons

    No real transparency on firm strategy or compensation levels. They seem to lay off at least one analyst every year to boost up the bonus pool.
