    Pros

    STRH is a great place to get experience right out of college, and if you want to do banking in the South its a good place to stay. The compensation is awesome for Atlanta.

    Cons

    You can probably get better exit opportunities elsewhere. People are nicer but its still an investment bank, and a lot of those same negatives apply (long hours, face time, etc.). Individual experiences vary widely depending on what group you are in.

    Pros

    The culture of the company is a high priority to management, and it shows through the people that work there. Everyone is very respectful and understanding, yet at the same time will push you. Managing directors maintain an open door policy and are easy to talk to. MDs will also help analysts with progressing their career.

    Cons

    Bonuses are below market, but the COL in Atlanta makes up for it for the most part. Deal flow at times can be down as well.

    Advice to Management

    in my experience, it seems like the culture in different groups as it relates to winning deals can pretty different. Maybe having a more unified approach on generating deal flow and growing the bank.

    Pros

    I work with some really good people. This company have great volunteer and diversity programs. And the the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management micro manages and does not promote growth. Would rather a person to stay the same position with no potential. With these characteristics, good empolyees tend to flee.

    Advice to Management

    When the company send out the mandatory survey to hear teammates/employees voices. The survey questions should not be so vague. Ask open and honest questions to receive the real truth.
