    Relaxed atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Newport Beach, CA

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere, nice location, nice office. They also throw sick conferences every year in Dana Point. All in all, it's a pretty decent place to work and it holds a good presence in California.

    ConsPay is lower than street, there's a very obvious divide in culture between IBD and the rest of the firm. A good amount of turnover from people either getting fired or leaving for other firms.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe pay more or find some direction for the firm now that China isn't a thing anymore.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    fun place to work but very low compensation

    Vice President Investment Banking (Former Employee) Newport Beach, CA

    Prosfun working environment. you will learn a lot if you're newer to the industry

    Consterrible compensation. investment banking analysts, associates, and VPs are paid a tiny fraction (30%ish) of what you can make at more mainstream firms. a lot of the hard working people who drive the success in the firm are paid peanuts. top management tries to keep all the money from themselves and is always looking for a way to get their hands in your pocket.

    Advice to Senior Managementpay more. youre retention will be much higher

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    overall good experience, very flat structure and easy to standout because talent is limited

    Institutional Sales (Current Employee) Newport Beach, CA

    Prosmgmt does not micro manage. you come and go as you please. decent pay outs compared to the street.

    Conssmall cap product which is often illiquid; buyside is looking for the opposite: larger market cap and liquidity
    investment bankers and research analysts do very limited due dilligence, sometimes none at all
    they do not strive to improve themselves
    they are considered a deal shop, but will not pay up for talented bankers
    quality of companies/deals are horrendous and many are frauds

    Advice to Senior Managementeach department needs a real manager who is motivated to implement change. sales & research especially.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Skip it.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Newport Beach, CA

    ProsGreat location, mostly good people.

    ConsMisses out on the meritocracy part of investment banking. Too political.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency needed. Ex-China, firm hasn't grown in a decade despite huge market opportunity and decade long run in its specialty, small cap stocks. Seems the top dogs would much rather 90% of a small pie instead of a a slightly smaller portion of a much bigger pie.

    Boutique culture at a boutique investment bank

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFun corporate culture, company is willing to give you as much responsibility and exposure as you can handle, flat organizational structure that gives you access to the entire company.

    ConsBelow market pay because management feels there is a significant intangible value to living in Southern California vs SF or NYC.

    Investment banking department is the highest on the totem pole and receives most of the capital resources for employees, travel, etc. Other departments (sales, research) seem to be viewed as a necessary evil and compensated as such.
