    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Phoenix Capital Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Small organization offers direct access to partnership
    -Creativity, ingenuity, and approach to structuring transactions by junior deal team members is heeded
    -Reasonable amounts of autonomy for more junior members of deal teams
    -Smart, capable professionals across most of the firm
    -More of a "scrappy" (not white shoe) cultural approach
    -Somewhat of a work-life balance relative to other financial services firms

    Cons

    -More of a "scrappy" (not white shoe) cultural approach
    -Below market benefits (health insurance, paid time off, etc.) for a financial services firm
    -Below market compensation for a financial services firm, esp. with regard to investment banking
    -Partnership often conducts high-level decision making in the dark (lack of transparency)
    -Some hiring mistakes / poor vetting of candidates
    -Lacking institutional resources in deference to cost-savings

    Advice to Management

    -360-degree feedback would be more useful than using an outside career coach to render feedback
    -A stronger vision about the direction of the firm clearly articulated and transparent would offer great benefits to all professionals
    -The best means of attracting and retaining top talent is to offer market-based compensation
