    Pros

    Incredible people, access to the senior management team and strong relationships between senior / junior bankers.

    As with any investment bank, long hours and weekend work weigh on you after a while. We could do a better job of managing our clients expectations to smooth workload.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain Lincoln culture and continue working to integrate our international offices. This will be a key strength of ours going forward.
