Slowly Dying Company
Investment Banking (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 7, 2015
10-15 years ago, this was a great little upstart investment bank; however the company barely scraped through the financial crisis and hasn't really recovered. The company is currently tetering on the edge, as the traditional 144A product has fallen way out of favor and larger, better managed companies are stepping down to the middle market arena.
Pros
Hours are decent
Cons
Way too many to list here

Very strong Managing Directors and Good Deals - poor firm management
Investment Banking Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 16, 2015
The high level investment bankers were strong deal makers with good relationships and powerful skillsets. However, the direction of the firm is not managed well at the highest levels, and pay is below street.

Productive and young workplace.
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 26, 2013
Small firm but very nice people and work life balance. The best part of working at the firm was the culture and atmosphere. The culture was very different from a similar firm in New York yet the work products were always excellent.

Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAApril 26, 2012
Flexible schedule for work, and management staff very understanding. Co-workers easy to get along with but some back-bitting. The hardest part of the job was getting last minute projects done for my manager in time. The most enjoyable part was knowing that all my work was completed each day in a timely manner.
Pros
parking garage
Cons
parking so expensive each month
