    Hard work with a smart and respectable team

    Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsGreat experience as an analyst at Greenhill. Worked with tons of smart people at all levels. Enjoyed focusing on M&A and restructuring. Had a few options for investment banks to work for but primarily selected Greenhill for it's company culture.

    ConsBrand name not as strong as GS/MS outside of Wall Street. Independent advisory model has some competitive disadvantages to investment banks with balance sheet.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Greenhill

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    Prossolid boutique investment bank with bulge bracket name recogniation on Wall Street
    good deal flow and high quality, smart co-workers

    Constough work / life balance (as expected in investment banking)
    small firm leads to uneven deal flow for the professionals

    Advice to Senior Managementslow down the hiring pace of Managing Directors and the expansion of offices. Focus on adding a few quality MDs vs. adding a large number.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
