JPMorgan Mid Cap Investment Banking

Does anyone have any insight on JPM's mid cap IB practice? I see they're in various tier 2 / tier 3 cities throughout the country, curious as to whether the compensation is approximately the same as the NYC / SF offices? Any insight on nature of work / deal flow / WLB would be helpful as well, thanks in advance!!

 

Based on the most helpful WSO content, JP Morgan's middle market focused team, which could be considered part of their mid-cap IB practice, operates similarly to Goldman's Cross Markets Group (CMG). They work on deals up to approximately $2 billion in enterprise value. The team is mostly generalist or industry agnostic, although some Managing Directors might have sectors they are more focused on.

Regarding compensation, it is suggested that pay might be slightly less than what you would find in traditional coverage/product groups, which could imply a difference compared to the NYC/SF offices, though specific figures aren't provided in the context.

As for the work-life balance (WLB), hours in these mid-cap focused teams are noted to be just as demanding, if not more so, than in traditional investment banking roles. This could mean long hours similar to those expected in major financial centers like NYC or SF.

Deal flow in these mid-market teams is robust, given their focus on deals up to $2 billion, but no specific comparison to the larger market teams is provided in the context.

Overall, while there might be some variations in compensation and the intensity of work hours could be high, the opportunity to work on significant deals is present in JPM's mid-cap IB practice.
