Approves of CEO

Pros

Wonderful people and great environment, people are respectful towards each other and the work done is very interesting and challenging.

Long hours in investment banking and not enough time off for vacations. I have to do 100+ weeks very often.

Advice to Management

Be more considerate towards your employees so it will be better to the work environment and also hire more people

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Bulge-bracket feel but with generally smaller deal teams
    -good deal experience

    Cons

    -Experience is very different between regional offices vs. headquarters (analysts at regional offices tend to work a lot more hours but are not compensated as well due to less analysts and just as much if not more work; also office politics more prominent at regional offices)
    -Usual cons of banking: facetime, general lack of care for your quality of life

    Advice to Management

    -People learn in different ways -- not all learn the best when they are constantly yelled at; some investment in structure of on-the-job training would be well-received
