    I have been working at GCA Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great middle-market TMT shop with lots of deal flow. Lots of opportunities for junior bankers to "play up" and take more roles on transactions. 2nd / 3rd year analysts are treated like Associates, etc. Career development path is strong, as direct relationships between MD's and junior levels is encouraged. Firm culture is probably best point, as "no-asshole policy" is strongly enforced.

    Cons

    Long hours, but is expected in investment banking. Vacation policy could be more flushed out, as "unlimited" vacation usually means very little.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GCA Advisors.

    Interview

    Two rounds. Second round Superday with 5 2v1s in the New York City Office. I would describe the process as straightforward and on par with recruiting at other Investment Banks.
