    Pros

    Nice Culture. Colleges Extremely helpful and good work life balance. Have a lot of SOE deals and top prestige in China.

    Cons

    Outlook has not been good in the past decades and not too many deals from the private sector. Don't meet senior level bankers often.

    Keep the current work life balance. The recent IPO is a good step and try to open new pipelines in the area.
