Harris Williams bootcamp

Does anyone have info on the HW bootcamp, specifically on what percentage of participants get return offers and what a participant can expect during the two weeks.

The program is 2 weeks in Richmond, VA. There are about 20-30 participants from my knowledge. It is two weeks, they put you In a hotel, pay for your food, and have training/networking events. I believe the first week is training and the second is a shadowing program. it takes place two weeks before traditional 10 week programs begin and is designed to feed interns into full time. A buddy of mine who did the program told me that it is pretty solid and that basically everyone gets an offer (it's similar to the big 4 leadership program where you have to really fuck up to not get an offer). His exact words were 96% offer rate. he did say that you won't get Into the program if you have another Internship even though it's designed to be before internships - it's really designed to feed into FT. he mentioned that if you get a full time it is in Richmond though and it's hard to lateral to Boston or SF

I agree somewhat, but the two Analysts that I spoke with both had other IB internships their Junior summer and still got into the M&A bootcamp program. They said it was great bc they went into their Summer Analyst internship knowing they had an offer from HW.

As far as the work itself, I've heard there's some training and then you get paired with an Analyst and an Associate to essentially work through an old deal. You put together a slide deck and build models and present to senior bankers. The Analyst and Associate are there to help you throughout the project.

Heard the hotel is nice as well. Free food for the two weeks and there's a decent stipend.

thanks for your post ^. Have you guys heard anything about the D.C. office (what comp, culture, and groups are there)? My understanding is that the A&D Group is there but I think their are other groups. I'd also expect comp to be a little higher since DC is much more expensive than Richmond.

Anyone hear about 2021 bootcamp interviews or gotten an email yet?

don't have specifics on the exact comp number but I have heard from boot camp alums that it is a generous sum of money for two weeks also keep in mind housing + food is taken care of I believe. No real out of pocket expenses.

Did the TPH bootcamp, it's not like the HW bootcamp.


At HW you do a 2-week internship and 95% of people get a return offer. At TPH you do a week-long overview of the O&G industry/TPH and essentially a stock pitch case competition. You're given a company and you're told to pitch something about it to a bunch of partners. You pay for your flights and housing for it, whereas at HW you're paid for the two weeks.


I've heard the HW bootcamp has a case study as well, but again, it leads to offers. The TPH bootcamp just leads to the opportunity to potentially interview. The bootcamp is filled with 50/50 finance students at targets and engineering students that study O&G at targets.


If you're interested in O&G then I'd definitely recommend it to gain a greater understanding for interviews with other places, but if not, it's boring and not worth the time + money you spend on it.

Do banks typically care if you do the bootcamp on top of regular summer internship? I am doing SA at another similar MM firm and debating whether my firm will get pissed at me?
