Pros

Easy to shine in short bursts

Cons

unprofessional environment populated by friends and family rather than by the talent. Senior management unaware that a company is made up of more than just sales and trading - it actually requires capable IT and middle office as well as a thoughtful investment in infrastructure and assets that support the business process. Penny wise and often pound foolish coupled with extravagant waste thrown at the wrong people

    Pros

    Small firm, so there's a lot of responsibility.
    Flat structure...you'll be speaking and working with MDs from day 1.
    Good intern projects...no busy work

    Cons

    Being small has its upsides...but also downsides: there's nowhere to hide so you have to learn things quickly. At larger firms, you have a longer grace period.
