Have a fair bit of deal flow but mych smaller deals than EBs. Unfortunately most of the legit guys (LevFin bankers, Direct lending, special sits shops, PE shops) pretty much all shit on debt advisors because let's be honest most of them are pretty clueless beyond process logistics and comparing a +400 vs +500 margin. Exits will be direct lending at best.
Tomorrow partners is the only debt advisor that is a bit respectable but they are ex-lawyers so are very good at docs.

They work with Equistone, Bridgepoint, Oaktree and the like, seems decent to be fair

Its not for who you work for that's the issue, its what you do in the role. But look if that's the only job you have go for it, you can always move from there and who knows maybe you like it.

Their value add is often the market intel. When we hire a banker/advisors its to thank them for letting us know about X asset or introducing us to Y person. Good ones are very rare. I'm sure you'd agree, what juniors do - that nobody cares.

I don't think it's common to exit in PE. Most will stay in debt advisory and some into MM credit funds

EDIT: I know that marlborough has a sort of fixed contract with Equistone and has to work on all of their deals.  They're really not making much fees from those

I know an MD that worked there and lateral in a boutique I interned at. He couldn't bring any deals (maybe he was let go), and to echo to what was said, he has a levfin background. But overall, I think it's a decent shop.

Saw some that went to HL, Rothschild and BofA as well (more juniors)
