    If you have perella weinberg on your resume, you're pretty much guaranteed to get into harvard, stanford, or wharton.

    If you have perella weinberg on your resume, you're pretty much guaranteed to get into harvard, stanford, or wharton --> is it because its that good or more because its so selective that those kids were gonna get into harvard/stanford anyway?

    Where would you place for PWP compared to GS/MS/C/Barcap/UBS/DB? Also anyone know some other PE funds for placement?

    I wouldn't put it above Goldman or Morgan Stanley, but if you like the smaller environment and may be interested in doing banking long-term, you could take PWP over C, BarCap, UBS or DB without any major qualm.

    Perella guys tend to prefer staying in banking or going to b-school to going to the buyside. Agree with the previous comments about great b-school placement, and those who do want to go to PE do quite well.

    How would perella compare in the boutiques? I would rank it below BX and lazard and almost on par with Evercore ? It would definitely be above Greenhill. It is also very exclusive so that helps in exit opps. In terms of comparison with BB, almost on par with CS but below GS and MS naturally.

    --> Are Evercore and Greenhill that different?

    Drexel alum will you mind explaining that hierarchy in more detail ?

  • drexelalum11's picture

    Of course. I rank banks using a very sophisticated algorithm based on the following:

    Y = 0.25a + .385m + 24.5e + .084th + o*a/5.67043 + p^2 + g + .000560v * l + .0045o

    Where:

    a is current US M&A league table position for transactions above $545m, below $3.45bn, announced not withdrawn, previous thirteen months, by volume
    m is global sell-side league table position for media transactions from 2007-2008, announced not withdrawn, above $46m, by volume
    e is number of analysts in the 2009 incoming class
    th is the number of analysts from the 2007 incoming class who have been laid off
    o is the number of associates in the incoming 2010 class from HBS plus the number from Booth times 1.45
    p is (approximately) 3.14159265
    g is the number of analysts at the bank divided by the number of secretaries, less the banks distance from the wall street bull in bars of gold, times the current level of the DJII, plus 2
    v is the bank's beta verse the relevant local index (estimated for partnerships)
    o is the number of former employees currently serving in the US treasury

    Based on this algorithm, all of the banks you queried about are decent.

    What are the values for Y that you use to determine "decent" and the other rankings (also decent, somewhat decent, etc.)? I've plugged the numbers into the equation and it appears legit depending on the intervals for "Y."

  • drexelalum11's picture

    Also decent is the same ranking as decent. The rankings are pretty simple: "decent" and "not decent." If you've plugged in the variables, you should be able to back-solve for what the decent range is. For reference, Piper Jaffray is the median value for "not decent"

    this is my 2nd post and I repeat : Perella is The Shit.

    Fuck evercore.
    Fuck greenhill.
    Fuck lazard.
