    6. 4.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Solid Team in a mid-market bank

      May 5, 2021 - IB: LevFin Analyst in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great Deal Exposure - Limited hierarchy (analysts get a lot of responsibility) - Team frequently punches above its weight, despite being a Tier-2 bank, team has won left-leads for quite a few marquee sponsors (Carlyle, BX, Etc.) - Good exit opps - analysts have gone to PE, Credit Funds etc.

      Cons

      A lot of admin related work - French banks love bureaucracy and it really shows. Not a fault of the team per se, but expect to spend a decent amount of time on non-deal BS.
