    I have been working at Houlihan Lokey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quite honestly, this job provides a pretty good stepping stone to get into investment banking (M&A or industry coverage). Generally, the people are very nice in FAS (at least in the LA office) and the group provides pretty good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Overall, compensation is pretty poor for FAS. Also, exit opportunities become very bleak if you stay longer than 1 year.


  2. "Great experience"

    I have been working at Houlihan Lokey as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. They were not only smart but also fun to work with. I worked in the FAS group as an analyst intern and had a great experience. The only reason I didn't return was because of the location, yet my MD still wrote me a great recommendation letter and helped me get my current job.

    Cons

    The hours were long and you can never really know when you'll have to work late or come in on the weekends. But that's pretty standard in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on.
