    I worked at Dresner Partners Investment Banking full-time

    Pros

    I have had a very fulfilling and stimulating experience during my tenure at Dresner Partners. My skills and knowledge of investment banking were very limited prior to Dresner. During my time here, however, I have gained a tremendous amount of experience and a vast array of proficiencies. I’ve had the opportunity to work on several different types of engagements across various industries and have really been able to refine my skill sets. I have enjoyed working with and have attained valuable knowledge from everyone within the organization – from the analysts to the president of the company.

    Cons

    No material cons to share.
