I worked at MMG Partners full-time (More than 3 years)
-Co-workers: Primarily ivy league educated women, since I've moved on I realized that it's rare to have such consistently brilliant coworkers, which provides a lot of room for professional development and friendship. Employees usually leave to work for at elite financial service / fin-tech firms (great exit opps).
-Growth- being that it's boutique run by MIT computer scientists, there's not a lot of organization or focus from management. There's a lot of room to grow and take on initiative. Depending on your personality, you can take on as much as you can chew which allows relatively young
employees to take on a lot of responsibility
-Skillset- Analysts and associates are able to gain top technical abilities (excel, VBA, SQL) given how data heavy the work flow is. Although it is a consulting firm, they do offer a propriatary SaaS produc tthat is used by almost every global bank/assetmanager. This gives you a lot of exposure to enterprise software deployment/SaaS sales/database management, which can be a great help when looking for an exit opp.
Cannot emphasize enough how terrible management is, unfortunately the CEO treats the firm as is pet project and the partners are incredibly lazy and unfocused. People are constantly surprised that they're able to recruit such excellent analysts/associate. The CEO picks favorites and champions over all other employees regardless of effort.
Advice to Management
Organize yourselves and listen to your employees,
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MMG Partners (New York, NY) in March 2017.
On Campus Recruitment, the process took about three days. I had two interviews and a mandatory information session. They took two weeks to respond.
Overall the company seemed very intelligent and the employees were very genuine people. The CEO seemed a little weird but I couldn't gauge him based on meeting him for one hour.
