    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Great Company, Better Team

      Pros

      This is my first 'professional' job so it is hard to relate the company to another. Overall, I am glad with the company so far. They are willing to sponsor you for any Regulatory exams needed. The team will teach you what you need to learn and does not micromanage. Very good company.

      Cons

      Not too many cons in my experience

      Pros

      Such a welcoming and friendly environment. Great team to work with and everyone is helpful.

      Cons

      Can’t really think of any at this time. Everything has been going well and everyone has been really pleasant.

      Great Learning and Growth Opportunity

      Pros

      Great place to start in equity research and learn the ropes. Can rapidly earn greater responsibility and career progress if you work hard and show commitment. Better work/life balance and internal growth opportunity than bulge brackets.

      Cons

      Initial pay is below the street, but can improve with strong performance. Benefits are poor.

      Great for Entry Experience

      Jun 1, 2021 - Associate Financial Advisor in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Admittedly, while the pay is not exactly ideal and is quite poor, if you are one that doesn't mind putting in hard work, there is a lot that one can absorb and learn from here. You are readily exposed to the different day-to-day operations because of the boutique nature of the shop, which is what you make out of it at the end of the day. People are typically always busy with their own work so it is on yourself to take initiative and ask questions; most people there weren't particularly hostile and malicious, and for the most part were usually nice and polite.

      Cons

      Extremely low compensation and it is questionable if the company has any respect for associates of lower position. Seems to be only either fresh replaceables or veteran bankers that already have pre-existing ties with upper management.

      Pros

      Great work-life balance, opportunity to build your presence in the business, performance is highly rewarded, access to upper Management, great work life balance

      Cons

      The ambitious and driven can do great, if one is not, then I guess that would be the downside, at least for that person

      Pros

      Lots of wholesalers cater free breakfasts and lunches.

      Cons

      Belittling occurs on a regular basis along with harassment and unethical business practices. Pressure to violate SEC rules are the norm. Prepare to work weekends and 10+ hour days. Below average compensation. HR argues over each sick and vacation day to limit the number you take vs what you’re entitled to. Office is ran like a frat house, zero professionalism.
