Networked with the firm before taking a different offer in NY. Can confirm that their industrials group there is pretty impressive, albeit sweaty. A quick LinkedIn search reveals they have very strong exits, especially if you're looking to stay in the midwest - they frequently send analysts to GTCR/MDP caliber PE shops. I believe they also possess the platform to move analysts to other cities afterwards if that's what you want. Seemed to be a good group of majority midwest undergrads (ND, Northwestern, etc.). Beautiful office in the city as well.

In comparison to other banks, I got the sense that it's one of the better bulge options in the city, although I know Citi still has a pretty big presence and that a global head of M&A sits in that office. Not as familiar with other BB's. In terms of MM, Blair/Baird lead the pack.

Hope this helps.

Completely agree. something to add is that they mainly do industrials, but also have exposure in education services and other midwest advisory fields. networked with a bunch of ppl and it does seems sweaty (many responded my emails at 3am) but ppl are super nice (what you could call "midwest culture")

All industrials groups are sweaty to be fair. Constant sponsor work and financing opportunities. Now add SPACs / EV and you are in a living hell
