    Super long hours with good people

    Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDespite 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

    ConsThe hours are long - no way around that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing

    Great place to start as a junior banker

    Pros1. Lots of responsibilities and lots of deal experience
    2. Great training ground as a junior banker
    3. Great culture and people
    4. A sense of work-life balance (relative to a typical M&A role)
    5. Embraces gender and ethnic diversity

    Cons1. Experience depending on the sector team
    2. Compensation is subpar vs. market
    3. Can be a bit too English

    Goo guidance. Less hierarchy than any other place I worked at. Focus on core Advisory product gets in a lot of good work

    Analyst (Former Employee) New Delhi (India)

    ProsWorking across regions. Global exposure irrespective of which office you work in. Chance to work with a bunch of really smart people

    ConsNot much to say in two years of working.

    Great exposure, great team.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Beijing, Beijing (China)

    ProsYou'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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider hiring more people

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
