uneven management
VP (Current Employee) –  New York City, New YorkSeptember 8, 2013
While I enjoy working at Cowen as there are many good people here, you always have to tread carefully when dealing with another department as management of certain areas are extremely reactionary on any perceived criticism to their area. Inter-office politics are surprisingly strong within Cowen, and often causes possible improvements not to be suggested as certain MD's will attack any possible change to the status quo.
Pros
good benefits and free pantry
Cons
fiefdoms

Productive and Interesting Place to Work
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 23, 2013
I loved working for this company. I learned a lot about Private Equity and Investment Banking. A typical day at work started with calendar managment and staying intuned with my direct bosses. My co-workers were friendly and outgoing. I am still friends with most of them today. The hardest part of the job was doing things I never learned elsewhere such as tracking changes. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing all my work perfectly and keeping my bosses happy.
Pros
great exposure to the investment banking field
Cons
must be good at juggling super egos
