AXE Capital -- Exit Ops

With all the recent news regarding AXE Capital, I was wondering if it's still a good place to work? Obviously it's been a top shop historically, but recently all the bad headlines have made me wonder if joining the firm would be a bad idea. Also, would the exit ops still be good even if I'm trained by the new head of investments and not Axelrod? I imagine a lot of the appeal of hiring AXE Capital analysts is the training by Axelrod. My other opportunity is at Ira Schirmer's fund. Let me know your thoughts!
