    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Rothschild & Co full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New analyst training program is by far the best on the street. Rothschild & Co flies you to London for two months, treating you to a first-class lifestyle while teaching you everything you need to know to be a successful investment banker.

    Cons

    Hours are long, but to be expected on Wall Street

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing: good compensation + good training = high morale

    - Rothschild brand is reputabile enough among potential clients to earn meetings - high variability among MD's as to frequency of business won

    Cons

    - Thin "junior" levels which creates best-practice/learning gaps - Lazard/Moelis hours/responsibilities w. less recognition from recruiters

    I worked at Rothschild & Co full-time

    Pros

    A friendly environment on the junior level. Associates and VPs are pretty close with analysts. New leadership in the US has been a positive, they have been trying to take meaningful steps to fix problems. Good pay, vertical mobility and career opportunities

    Cons

    Feels like a sweatshop a lot of the time. MDs will grind junior guys day and night and go crazy over decks that have no chance of leading to live deals.

    Advice to Management

    Manage MD use of junior resources more carefully. Seems like there is little discussion between MDs, meaning that junior guys just get crushed.
