I worked at Perella Weinberg Partners full-time (More than a year)
Many of the partners are top notch. Tremendous exposure given smaller size of the firm. Definitely has the "right" people to work for, and identifying them early will help your career.
Became less nimble over time, and top performing analysts were often overstaffed. Managmenet was reluctant to move on from underperfomers, which only added to the workload for strong employees.
Advice to Management
Most of the management team has changed since my departure. Improving culture seems to have helped work life balance.
Very good process - provides candidates with the ability to meet many members of the firm and assess fit. The process is thorough and technical, yet handled very efficiently and professionally.
