I know they do good deals but would it be feasible to take them over a bulge bracket? (DB/UBS, not M&A/LevFin)

Absolutely it would. Here's why:

-M&A focused, so you don't have to deal with all those shitty capital raises.
-Pay is above street.
-Excellent culture.
-They're still a private partnership, so management isn't tied to stupid fucking shareholder concerns. (Admittedly, this last one is just a personal preference.)

I would take Centerview over almost any banking firm out there. But then again, I really like the C+R space.

10/6/11

really? I met a few of their analysts and wasn't very impressed

seems like more variability

yes

10/6/11

I'd take it over a BB in a heartbeat.

10/6/11

Would definitely look at them over a lower-tier BB

Also, their pay is not just "above" street. It's significantly above street.

I had no idea.. how much exactly? Just curious.

At the end of my interview they told me to save the date for Superday, but ultimately I wasn't invited!!

yeah i can echo the significantly above street part. a few years ago, i believe an analyst there made 120k bonus when street was around 70k.

10/6/11

Yeah. You're in the ballpark with that number. Base salary is also higher than street

10/6/11

^yeah guy brought in over 200k which is a nice chunk of change for a 22 yr old.

10/10/11

Are bonuses nowadays still in the 100+ range?

10/10/11

Anyone else have some more information on them? Have the filled out their analyst class?

10/11/11

exiting from there must be a bitch though. I'd imagine they expect you to stay 3+ years?
