Hotel Meeting Spots?Does anyone have recommendations of hotels or lounges in midtown east that are good for meetings of 3-4 people? Doesn't need to be private rooms, but somewhere to sit and grab a drink where it's not too loud and you can have some privacy (as opposed to meeting at a Starbucks). Thanks. 1 year 1 month
Secondary PE ModelingI have a 2nd round interview coming up with a secondary PE fund. They do mostly LP secondaries of funds that are majority invested. I'm still trying to understand exactly how they value these LP interests. In the round 1 interview, they told me that they do a bottoms up analysis on the... 2 years 8 months
Corporate Strategy at a BBHey guys. Currently a 3rd year analyst at a BB and have an upcoming interview for a corporate strategy/development role at another global investment bank. This is a unique role in that it is working with a small team (partly in NYC, partly in Europe) on the company's overall long-term strategy. Job... 2 years 10 months
Business Development Compensation?I got a semi-offer from HR for a business development analyst role at a large financial services / tech firm in NYC. The HR contact basically asked me what compensation I am expecting in order to accept the role. I only said what my recent compensation at banking is and that I expect the offer to... 3 years 2 weeks
LBO - Seller's Note?Just took an LBO modeling exam for an interview and had a question. Part of the financing was a seller's note at 0.5x leverage (in addition to a revolver and term loan). I was fine with setting up the sources and uses, but was not sure how the seller's note gets treated in the debt calcs and IRR... 3 years 4 months
Summer Vacation?I'm looking to take off 10-14 days for vacation in late July / early August with a friend of mine. I've already traveled Western Europe and not looking to go too far like Asia. I'm considering Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and/or Colombia. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations? Other... 3 years 5 months
Custom Suit DealThere's a deal on Groupon similar to the Indochino deal that was posted here a few weeks ago. It's for a custom suit and shirt from Knot Standard. Anyone heard anything about these? Seems like a good deal. 3 years 7 months
Bottom I-Banking Gigs--Strictly Exit Opps to...Ok-- so I know that people here are not into ranking the various Wall St banks in regards to overall prestige, but this is a little different. I think a lot of people might find it useful to know how *INDIVIDUAL* groups stack up against one another when it comes to *STRICTLY* getting absolutely... 3 years 8 months
GCP Capital PartnersAnyone know anything about this firm? They are a spinoff of Greenhill Capital Partners. 3 years 9 months
SolarCity - Structured Finance Analyst?Got a call from a recruiter about this job. What do you guys think of doing this post 2 years in banking, in terms of opportunities to PE or top B-School afterwards? Is this a decent gig or doesn't compare to PE / HF / Corp Dev? Long-term goal is PE or HF but opportunities currently seem bleak for... 3 years 9 months

Where the rest go is completely spread out across banking, other asset management, corporate development, etc. Just one example - I know someone who did banking --> PE --> Wharton MBA, and now works in strategy at... 1 year 6 months

This is a private database for brokers. MLS listings by default are not up to date, and most of them use stock photos. Urban Compass is garbage - they are a traditional... 1 year 8 months

People who are calling it creepy are just using that as en excuse because they are too pussy to actually try it, as the author says.
