How to Avoid Becoming a Synergy
Greenhill employee here. Normally I post under my default username.
As you may have seen, Greenhill is being acquired by Mizuho https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2023/0… and I was wondering if anyone had any practical experience as to how bank integrations work. Do banks win out or do teams? How are underproductive employees treated? It's an open secret that 50 or so of GHL's MDs are incapable of covering their costs. Conversely, any firm willing to pay a 2x premium for a firm that was generally assumed to be a bankruptcy risk can't be run by the sharpest of management teams.
Any advice as to how to best position myself in advance of the deal closing?
Thanks in advance.
