I worked at Gleacher & Company full-time (More than a year)
Had a great fixed income team with good brokers and traders in a wide range of products. The investment bankers worked closely with the trading desks had a better handle of the market.
We didn't have enough time to get traction to turn the company around. The investment banking/structuring group working within the fixed income desks had opportunities to close a few deals but more time would have been beneficial to all.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gleacher & Company (New York, NY) in February 2013.
On-campus interview. Met with analyst and director. They were very late in the recruiting process. Direct seemed very uninterested and analyst was super arrogant and gave off a vibe that he thought he was really good (cocky). Standard questions like why Gleacher and why small middle market firm instead of bulge bracket. Technicals were hard even though analyst knew that the university didn't have a finance major.
