Jefferies vs. Houlihan TMT in San Francisco

Any insight into Jefferies / Houlihan TMT in San Francisco? How do the two compare in terms of culture, deal flow, and exit opportunities? Are either / both generally respected in the TMT space?

I know there's been some upheaval at Jefferies with several new MD's coming over from CS in the past year, but it sounds like their deal flow has been pretty solid.

Jefferies has an extremely strong head of tech banking - Cully Davis. Really chill guy who goes out of his way to help junior people/potential internship applicants (he helped me get pretty far along in the process coming from a non target and is a current mentor of mine) Be aware that some of the analysts are pretty smug/will ding you in the application process if you go over their heads in terms of trying to networking with anyone above the associate level. Strong dealflow based on the group head's words & a few friends who currently work in the group. They only take 3-5 summer analysts per year but are looking to expand that. The consumer group is run out of the same office and has a few douche VP's, but overall great group with strong dealflow. Note:I don't work there - have heard this information through my own networking and friends who are at the firm.
