    Pros

    Good pay, people are relatively friendly to work with, not as beaureucratic as other IBs I've worked in

    Cons

    No staff benefits - i.e. no teabags or milk! everyone has to keep stashes of teabags, sugar, salt, pepper in their drawers, it's ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Little things like some snacks or employees benefits like team events make people happier when you don't give them bonuses

  2. Great company to build banking career

    Pros

    Very intelligent employees and a hard working environment. For those wishing to learn the traits of Investment Banking it's a great company to get exposure.

    Cons

    Really suited to a young people or people with little out of work responsibilites as there is a tendency to work very long hours. If you have commitments outside of work such as family be prepared to make sacrifices.
