I worked at Houlihan Lokey full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great place to start your career and learn finance. Met some of the smartest people I know at this firm. Strong reputation.

Cons

Typical of IB. Long hours - seemed excessive/unnecessary at times. Hours seemed longer than they were for friends at other IBs

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Houlihan Lokey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I know what's expected of me from my team and management. Allowed a great deal of autonomy to complete my work the way I want to so long as the results are timely and according to expectations. Good company events (in-office breakfasts, off-site happy hour, parties, etc). My department has a great energy.

    Cons

    There are obvious issues with hostility and poor management in other departments. Corporate tends to be laissez-faire when they should take a more interested approach to managing their many offices around the country. Promotions tend to be illogical and not merit-based.

    I worked at Houlihan Lokey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - industry leader in creditor-side restructurings
    - good opportunities to get promoted to mid-level
    - decent pay considering better work-life balance in LA vs NY

    Cons

    - limited exit opportunities given lack of brand recognition (restructuring analysts tend to get hired by credit hedge funds, but tough to break into PE, VC, and equity HF)
    - some tough characters to work for
