    I worked at Mesirow Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong supporter of charities and local business development.

    Cons

    Fragmented business structure, which only Jim was able to effectively manage. Current leadership team is lost without him. Selling the company maybe it's best long-term strategy. Privately owned by highly compensated executives, which creates benefits as well as conflicts of interest.

    Advice to Management

    Fund of funds are likely a thing of the past and bankruptcy consulting was never a fit for an asset manager. Decide what differentiates the company amongst its competitors, focus on that alone.
