    I worked at GCA Altium full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In 7 years of corporate finance advisory, these were by far my best years in the space:
    + Unique culture: entrepreneurial approach in which the team effort is the focus
    + Team is deal oriented and wants to get things done whilst providing creative and tailored-made solutions to their clients - everyone at all level is pushed to contribute to that
    +The deal flow is massive and do not even think of getting bored!
    + The network within GCA is powerful and you will work with colleagues from all around the world
    + Global company with a human size
    +The do-it approach: you have a great idea for GCA Altium? Great! Then talk internally and if your idea makes sense, you can push for it straight away
    + Great personal development opportunities thanks to a strong HR platform put in place - e.g. after 2 years, I was able to work for in another office for some months and completed a transaction there
    + Several extra activities outside work will enable you becoming familiar with this great Team

    Cons

    - The work load is sometimes difficult to predict but this is rather inherent to the industry

    Advice to Management

    The Management of GCA Altium was highly successful in shifting their European business (Altium) into a global Investment Bank (GCA Altium), which led to gain greater market share in Europe. The Management Team Members are not only top notch advisors but also entrepreneurs in heart who want to push their brand further by being following a clear vision and by cautiously listening to the feedback of their employees at all level.
