Senior Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 5, 2017
I spent 4 years working for this company and it was the worst experience I've ever had. The management is an absolute joke. They do not encourage out of the box thinking and expect employees to stay in there designated box. Fellow co-workers where allowed to exhibit violent, abusive behavior and the management team and HR chose to look the other way. Do not work here.

promising opportunity for those looking to break into banking. houlihan is a deal shop, so there is tons of work, some painful and some not. but all-in, this is one of the most powerful mid-market IB in the game.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 7, 2016
The job was easy and clear everyday that i came to work. There was never a day i did not want to go to work. I really liked my supervisors because each one showed me the ropes and taught me as i was willing to learn.

Long hours and demanding work. Very cliquey culture, so you are either in or out. Hours are long, as you would expect in banking. Management tries to make itself accessible but will make you feel stupid if you ask a simple question. Best part of the job is the experience, the compensation, and the exit opportunities. The worst part about the job is having to work till late at night and have co-workers distract you with different taunts and names.
Great place to start a career, compensation, very smart people
Investment Banking Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 8, 2015
Very collaborative feel to the bank. Small, boutique bank feel with the resources and support of a large, global financial institution. Live deal experience at a junior level and lots of client interaction as well. Good pay structure and benefits. Work/life balance is always a compromise in the industry but, depending on your group at HL, the company does a nice job of allowing you to have your life outside of the job.
FACILITIES SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 12, 2015
Typical day: Non stop running. Dealing with complaints and issues. What I learned: Not to take things personally Management: NA Co-workers: for the most part, my co-workers are amazing. Like most places, you have the good and the bad. Hardest part of the job: Not taking this stuff home. The most enjoyable part of the job: I've made a couple of friendships that will follow me when I leave.
Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles – April 2, 2014
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.
Compensation doesn't keep up with COL; management only cares about themselves
