    Growing Firm

    Investment Banking Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsLots of direct exposure to clients at the junior level. Growing firm with plans to hire. Culture is much better than at a Bulge Bracket.

    ConsHours at the office can definitely be long. Productivity is lower when you are given copious amounts of edits that have no real value add (formatting different ways across groups). Not as many resources as a bulge bracket (no 24 hr print shop, design team, IT is bad, etc.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake your analysts' lives better because without them producing work the bank would be crippled.

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

    IT Analyst

    Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat people and great culture. The Atlanta location downtown is a great place to work and the people are dedicated and dependable.

    ConsThe salaries are generally not too great. The management of the holding company is often times hands off and you really need to be self directed in order to succeed and to be recognized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the important contributors and let the others go.

    Constoo sales oriented and way too many people in middle management

    Advice to Senior Managementre-orient the business to be more client-focused than sales focused

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

    Get in, get out

    Senior Accountant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat work life balance, great exposure to investment banking and capital markets

    ConsCompany does not take the time to develop interested employees. Because the culture is great, it's easy to get sucked into doing the same thing for 5+ years and management will allow you to do so out of comfort and laziness.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more of an interest in the growth and development of staff

    Good summer internship experience

    Investment Banking Summer Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsSunTrust Robinson Humphrey has a good week-long training programs for their interns, structured events throughout the summer that are well-organized, good networking capabilities within the bank, and allow the ability to contribute from day 1, good culture.

    ConsThe bank, like most, is very bureaucratic and hierarchical. The usual: long hours for analysts, and not the best exit opportunities for analysts after analyst stint, though some are promoted.

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

    BofA South - the place to be for IB in Atlanta

    Capital Markets (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat summer intern program - virtually guarantees full time offer if you perform
    Great analyst program, advertised as 2y and out but if you perform you can stay on
    Smaller deal teams give you exposure to deals and a lot of work/responsibility relatively early, good exposure to MDs/execs
    Pay is decent for Atlanta lifestyle, central Buckhead office location

    ConsBofA South - very difficult to rise to director/MD without the BofA pedigree
    Promotions extraordinarily political - performance secondary to who one knows and how well one lobbies
    Pay can very greatly from group to group regardless of production
    Middle management competency varies greatly from group to group
    Seem to be adding layers of management. Hired a ton of MDs without adding necessary support staff
    Consistently over promise and under deliver when it comes to compensation even as STRH generates record YoY top and bottom line numbers
    As typical in industry, place zero value on work/life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward performance consistently. Get off the BofA high horse. Shed unnecessary middle management.

    Risk Averse

    Associate (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood team of people at the associate/VP level.

    ConsPromotions require a lot of closed door lobbying and sponsorship for senior executives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet clear targets and rewards and be prepared to deliver if targets are hit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I truly enjoyed my experiences at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey

    Support Desk Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsExcellent pay. Opportunity for growth.

    ConsSometimes repetitious in daily work activities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue recognizing your stellar employees and coaching the mediocre employees.
