I worked at Piper Jaffray full-time (More than a year)
Good client exposure on and deal flow in Cap Mkts.
Lack of M&A deal flow. Lots of pitching for deals that go nowhere (same as any other IB)
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray.
First round phone interview with a current Piper associate. Mix of standard behavioral questions and questions about background and resume. Nothing too technical. Asked for a stock pitch, but it was very high-level and was not probed too deeply.
