      Cons

      Salary and bonuses are very low, especially for entry level positions. Management seems out of touch with their employees. Entry-level positions feel stagnant; growth seems limited.

      Fundamental Finance & Interesting Work

      Jan 12, 2021 - Portfolio Valuation Analyst in Atlanta, GA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The day-to-day is pretty interesting if you enjoy finance. Clients include large to small PE firms and investment banks. There are some truly interesting deals out there that we get to review, assess, and value.

      Cons

      Sometimes you can spread yourself too thin during quarter-end and work 60+ hours a week but it is really up to you how much work you want to bite off. The career progression system is set up so that you overwork yourself to achieve high utilization. That being said, you rarely work these investment banking hours for very long, really only during quarter-end if you are trying to boost your utilization.
