    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

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Current Employee - Head of User Support in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Rothschild & Sons full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working approach, management style, doesn't comform to the standard Investment Banking way of working. There is a lot of history and prestige associated with working here.

    Cons

    The pay and support within the company could be a little better here. There are many globalisation projects taking place and there is a fear that it will change the ethos of the way that the brand is represented.

    Pros

    Prestige and heritage, decent exit opportunities

    Cons

    Miserable atmosphere, politics, hypocritical lip service towards being more collegiate/humane than other investment banks when the truth is we are worked just as miserably and hard, for lower compensation.

    Former Employee - M&A Intern in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    I worked at Rothschild & Sons as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very good insight into M&A, got to work with amazing people, very high learning curve, good pay

    Cons

    Horrible working hours, very tight deadlines, no feedback at all, banker's fight to know who's got the biggest ego

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the "lower" people have more insight into their work and why they work until 2am every day.
