Hope you can help answer some of my questions about FAS.
I know HL FAS does tons of fairness, solvency opinion work along with goodwill impairment, PPA and it isn't as respected as Corp Fin and Restructuring. But, I'm wondering if there is a way to get any exposure to deals/M&A within FAS. Are there opportunities to work across teams that deal more with M&A type work?
How difficult is it for an analyst in FAS to switch to their corp fin group?
How is the compensation in terms of salary and year-end bonus?
What are some of the exit opportunities? Would I have to switch to M&A before making it to a decent PE?

There is also much talk about client interaction at the junior level relative to other boutique/middle market banks; how much client interaction is there at the analyst level for FAS?
