    Pros

    Everyone was super kind, welcoming, and willing to mentor, which is literally everything you can ask for as an intern (and now incoming analyst).

    Cons

    Nothing really comes to mind, hours are long but that was to be expected.

    Decent place to spend a small portion of your career

    Sep 28, 2022 - Director in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good project flow due to the company's investment in Managing Directors whose responsibilities are developing and maintaining relationships with recurring and potential clients.

    Cons

    A high value is placed on selling work to the exclusion of allowing time to place appropriate emphasis on executing projects. Execution of work is expected at a high level but is not rewarded with the same recognition or compensation. Director-level employees have to rely on capable staff, but not every new hire is capable to meet expectations.

    Pros

    The company really takes care of you with meals, office perks, and benefits. The people working there and the culture is pretty good as well.

    Cons

    The work was absolutely mind-numbing. On call late into the night, usually up till midnight.

    Interesting work and dealflow, not great pay (FVA)

    Sep 5, 2022 - Financial Analyst in Atlanta, GA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    People and culture are really friendly and good-- people are generally willing to help one another. There is healthy competition, but there isn't any backstabbing nor does the hiring culture encourage toxic competition. The firm only hires exactly what they need and doesn't overhire; if they need more people, they'll hire that many more but the majority of their positions are either internal hires, prior interns, or boomerangs.

    Cons

    For how little some of the groups are paid, they do see a lot of hours, which has lead to certain groups to have insanely high turnover. The analysts that stay don't stay long enough to be good and provide good foundation for the next analysts, as they quit so early. So it's a perpetual cycle of new analysts that aren't very good teaching more new analysts to once again, not be very good.
