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

Comments (15)


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.


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

seems like more variability


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


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.


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


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


Are bonuses nowadays still in the 100+ range?


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


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

Did you pay attention? Why would you want to leave? They have their own PE fund.
