    I have been working at Lincoln International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lincoln's culture is collegial and supportive, where the people take an interest in your personal development; senior bankers are approachable, mentoring relationships are fostered from the time you join the firm and the camaraderie developed among junior bankers makes for a more enjoyable experience. When you genuinely like the people in the firm, work feels a little less like "work".

    Rather than maintaining a strict set of duties for each role, Lincoln encourages analysts to take on additional responsibilities as they progress and feel more comfortable. This allows for a higher level of client interaction, opportunities to work directly with senior bankers and a means to continue learning throughout your time as an analyst.

    You are given responsibility and begin making valuable contributions immediately in both technical and client management aspects of the transaction process. In my first 6 months with the firm, I have led the creation of important marketing materials, communicated with company CEOs and private equity firm partners and made calls to potential acquirers.

    Cons

    As with any investment bank, you should be prepared to work long hours. Although people at Lincoln are generally understanding and respectful of your time, you must be willing to commit to the job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to protect the culture you have created at Lincoln--it is truly what makes this firm unlike any other investment bank.
