    Great place to get started, grow and develop a career in Leveraged Finance.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Rewarding commercial/ investment bank to work for. Employees work with a sense of ownership of the firm.

    Cons

    Promotions take longer. More responsibilities may not be accompanied by more resource allocations. Challenging working environment at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Messages from top executives sometimes do not address key concerns of middle management.

    Pros

    If you are one of the kind, you can make through all the obstacles to a niche for itself.

    Cons

    Management or boss won't care a single bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the organization as an integral part of the group as a whole, not merely as an offshore service Centre.

    Entrepreneurial but not a great choice for women or minorities in many business areas

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Director  in  New York, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Director in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment. Still growth in many businesses. Could really turn around with the right regional management and some hands on leadership

    Cons

    Weak leadership and highly political. Very little diversity in several businesses. Management openly undermine new and upcoming women leaders. Needs to introduce a culture of accountability and consequence from the top down. Still in boys club mode which will continue to get them into trouble as a firm. NY is worse then other regions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity should be an important element in management. Clear mandates and a path to success is in everyone's best interest and makes for a better quality of work. HR should play a more active role to educate management about unconscious bias and introduce a environment of accountability and consequence. I would steer away talent from DB for these reasons at the present but believe the platform could be stellar with the right people at the helm in NA

    the organization up-down structure with local and Europe leadership is confusing.

    Former Employee - Vice President  in  New York, NY (US)
    Former Employee - Vice President in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    - Highly entrepreneurial
    - Challenging/interesting work
    - Good salary and benefits

    Cons

    - Highly political environment: pick mentor(s) who are well-regarded and know their way around the organization
    - Highly bureaucratic environment: need to go through a lot of hoops to get things done/approved; only gotten worse with onset of external regulatory forces (a lot tougher to get things done)
    - Sharp elbows among colleagues: at the end of the day, everyone is out for themselves and wanting to maximize their comp at year-end.
    (I should note that the above all all pretty common to most, if not all, investment banks)
