"interesting" place to work
Managing Director - Financial Advisory Services (Current Employee), New York, NYNovember 5, 2014
Pros: excellent market reputation
Cons: poorly managed. little cohesiveness between departments and overall firm strategy.
There are some very talented people at this firm. Unfortunately, it appears to be fun as three separate businesses rather than a cohesive unit.

Good place to work. They want me to post why I have been working for this company. Not sure why you would want me to post that when clearly I am posting a resume to look at potential new positions.

OK place to work
Manager (Current Employee), Los AngelesApril 2, 2014
Pros: work/life balance
Cons: compensation doesn't keep up with col; management only cares about themselves
Most days are OK. Work/Life balance is decent. Management is horrible. They only think of themselves and how much money they can put in their own pockets. They don't promote hard working employees but rather the lazy ones seem to get ahead. There are some really smart people here but most don't know how to mentor the junior employees.

Registration Assistant (Former Employee), Century City, CAAugust 13, 2012
Pros: great people environment
Cons: somewhat little privacy (as in work space and office layout)
Houlihan Lokey is a great place to come to work in the morning. Knowing what needed of you on a daily basis should be credited to management. Working on projects with co-workers, contributing and meeting deadlines has proven to be a great experience for me in which I've appreciated. Houlihan also have a few company activities that happen throughout the year which keeps thing exciting and enjoyable.

The people at HL are what make it a great place to work. Although it is a fast-paced, high pressure environment, the teams are close knit and cohesive.
