I worked at Houlihan Lokey full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Houlihan is a great place to start or continue your career. It is continually growing and has a great entrepreneurial culture. As a finance professional, you will work incredibly hard, but you will also have the opportunity to learn about and help companies in numerous industries. The people were the reason why I joined Houlihan over other companies and it was the reason I stayed there until going back to school.

Cons

Be prepared to work hard and challenge yourself. There will be nights that you don't go home and weeks where you do not see your family. That's the nature of the business. Know yourself and what you are looking for career wise before accepting an offer.

Advice to Management

More compensation transparency and more morale building activities.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Small deal teams.
    Model experience for analyst, not just pitchbooks.
    No one really watching analyst intil it's too late.

    Cons

    "Expendible" attitude with analysts.
    Some teams only have one analyst so your always slammed with work.
    Low pay:work ratio.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of how Associates, Directors and VP's treat the Analysts. The team is only as strong as its weakest link.
