    Pros

    Good money if you can become an market maker or coverage trader

    Cons

    Huge turnover
    management incompetence
    investment banking runs this place

    lay offs all of the time

    Advice to Management

    They need to have more stability in employment there, layoffs happen all of the time, one time they literally had everybody at their desk and if you were called you were laid off. pretty much like a firing squad.

    Pros

    Experience. Piper gives analysts lots of responsibility (ie additional work) which gives you a lot to speak to when it comes to interviewing elsewhere. This makes it sound not good, but really, analyst programs are built around analysts moving on to VC/PE so it does prepare you well for those opportunities.

    Cons

    Limited respect for your time, impossible to have a personal life, not necessarily as well regarded as bulge banks, but competes well in the middle-market.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management doesn't do much to supervise the IB division. There's a disconnect from Senior mgt - senior bankers - junior resources. You should get more involved with the senior bankers to ensure that they're fostering the partnership environment you talk about. That message never flows down to junior resources in action, and I can assure you the junior resources have no interest in moving up the ladder in a firm like that. You'll constantly be looking outside for senior bankers which is why it's hard for you to actually develop "partners" that you want.
