    I worked at Greenhill & Co. full-time


    If you want to, you can learn a lot. Especially if you work alongside someone who is willing to communicate how things work. If you care about what you do, there is plenty of it to do and the relationships you foster because of your work ethic will have team members gravitate towards you. Everyone is friendly. Summers were nice and sleepy. I felt like


    -There is no getting away from the difficult, screamy or email-every-minute-client for the next two years when they come with the next deal that was signed up. -Lots of internal departures, that's just how this business is. So there is no real fostering of one-on-one EA to an Executive feeling, if that's what you are looking for. -Expense reporting is tedious! The expense system has multi-levels of deal codes per category and that is just for one receipt! Get ready to spend an hour on one report in data entry alone (sometimes bankers would split one receipt a few different ways). -Administration kept EA's that were bad apples (despite files that were thick with complaints) for too long which made the good apples go sour as well.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of the message you send to valued team members when you do not include them on group lunches or team retreats. A yearly raise in their salary isn't the only thing that makes an employee feel appreciated.
