    Pros

    People are amazing. The company truly cares about your professional and personal progress. High caliber testifiers. The leadership also has a lot of integrity and works hard to get great results for clients.

    Cons

    I have heard that salaries can be below market but cannot confirm. Nothing negative really. Never thought I would find a place that I would like to stay long term. This is it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Stout full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Countless opportunities to do work typically reserved for the associate and VP roles, this leads to high exposure to clients/c-suite execs and skill building outside the analyst role at other banks

    Facetime is not important in night hours

    Cons

    Almost nonexistent culture - bankers are all from different backgrounds

    Facetime is very important in the morning (expected in your seat on time no matter how late you stay)

    Not feedback friendly

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Very hands off approach to management. As an entry level employee you are essentially your own boss

    Cons

    With hands off approach comes many mistakes when you start working. More structured training would be helpful.
