Culture at Houlihan Lokey vs Lazard & other boutiques?
I have read and heard a lot about Houlihan Lokey's culture and that they have the best culture on the street+everyone there seems very excited about working at this growing firm+cool people working there. However, I have also heard that some people are snobbish and that culture is like Lazard's-very competitive and antisocial. So was wondering what is really true and if they are really happy to work there because of the culture and people or because of their salary, which apparently is one of the highest at HL ;). And because of that they tend to get praise for their "culture"?
Has anyone met people from Houlihan or can provide more information about the firm and mainly about its people/culture ?
