Business Development Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 9, 2019
Everyone works hard and it will be compensated. Of course, this all depends on what group you work for, but for the most part, you will get your fair share of the pie unless they are trying to push you out. In any case, you will get the experience you need to excel in your career.

Top shop for restructuring with excellent deal flow. Mostly creditor side work. Great place to learn. Understaffed so expect long hours but the pay is commensurate.

Do not work here
Senior Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 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
Associate, Corporate Finance (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 4, 2017
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.

Good Restructuring Deal Flow
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  United StatesMarch 1, 2016
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.
Pros
Great place to start a career, compensation, very smart people
Cons
Hours, Ego

Great investment bank to work for.
Investment Banking Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 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.

hard work
Financial Advisory Services - Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 20, 2015
Lots of hours required, middle market clients that may not offer the best exit opportunities, 10 days of paid time off which makes taking vacations throughout the year tricky
