    I worked at Rothschild & Sons full-time

    Pros

    Despite being an investment bank, the people were generally very good and took a genuine interest in helping you grow. Egos weren't as big of an issue as they are elsewhere

    Cons

    The hours are long - no way around that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Rothschild & Sons full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You'd feel proud to work here as the trusted financial advisor delivering superb quality work to clients who appreciate your value. Massive deal flow. Most of your time is spent on live transactions rather than pitching.
    Great exposure for analysts and associates - can attend all board room meetings and negotiations rather than just trapped in a cubicle.
    Awesome team. High caliber. Close relationship. Family feeling.
    Hours are manageable.

    Cons

    Could use more people. Talents spread too thin, but that is a tradeoff against good exposure for junior people. So cannot complain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring more people
