“The best experience in IB. The ability to work on high profile, complex transactions while receiving unparalleled exposure and development.”

The exposure and experience that you receive on transactions is unparalleled. You have the opportunity to interact directly with executives of some of the biggest names in the private sector. You will be supported throughout the process by phenomenal people who genuinely want you to succeed. Smaller transactions are handled by the middle market portion of the firm, so most transactions you work on will be industry defining. The ability to work in M&A and Restructuring over the summer presents the opportunity to find what you want to do FT without siloing you immediately.


Wish the internship was longer.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I would've known that our culture was as great as it is. Arguably the firm has the best culture on the Street while simultaneously being very underrated in that regard. Everybody knows that the firm is extremely prestigious and is a leader in its field, but there is an inaccurate depiction of the firm's culture. I've worked at a decent amount of firms in finance, and this firm has the best culture I've experienced. Because when you factor in the culture, prestigious (exit opps if that is your goal), and learning experience it is arguably the best place to start your career on Wall Street.
