I have been working at William Blair full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great Midwestern people, autonomy, great pay.

Cons

Many positions require long hours from time to time, but no different from most jobs.

Advice to Management

Stay private. Don't change the private/partnership structure.

    Pros

    Mid-level senior folks take time to mentor junior folks. VPs and Associates typically had banking experience prior to being an Associate and therefore are very competent. Many MDs and Partners were analysts even. People stick around a while because they like the company.

    Cons

    Conservative, not forward-thinking at times and generally hardly cutting edge. It's a pro and con - it means things don't change fast for better or for worse. Did well during the recession because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Excellent."
