Opinion on Greentech Capital Advisors after recent merger with Nomura

Prospect in IB-M&A

Hi Monkeys,

Nomura recently acquired Greentech Capital Advisors and will rename the firm Nomura Greentech.

Was wondering if you guys had insights on how this will affect the dynamics at Greentech in the future in terms of exit opps, office locations, employee culture,etc..

Any info would be appreciated!

I had one of my worst Superday experiences there. Completely unorganized (forgot to pay for hotel, took 8 months to reimburse for expenses) and they also started the slate of interviews late (was waiting in the office for >1hr). This was also coming off of my second round interview where the interviewer told me directly he didn't like my answers to the behavioral questions and cut the interview short (got the Superday invite a week later). Would not recommend this firm at all, maybe Nomura will help make it a bit more professional, but who knows

Culture is not the best either btw at least in the NY office. One of my friends told me everyone is actively meeting recruiters at Blue Bottle across the street to try to lateral. MDs keeep throwing pitches at people that they know have a very low chance of succeeding. That too, they throw them the day before the date.

I think you know what I am doing.

former/current GT banker here. Have definitely seen kids waiting for an absurd amount of time before interviews (bankers too staffed to step away for 30 mins obviously not a good look for the firm). Pretty wild if someone actually said your answers weren't good in an interview... can't believe that one, but who knows. Only thing I'd say is read the Glassdoor reviews. pretty much all recent stuff is true over there. huge pros and cons to coming here. highs are high, lows are low. insane exit ops.

Same experience here. Interviewers seemed disinterested and not very respectful. Didn't like the firm at all and considered walking out mid-waiting 30 mins for the next interviewer to come in.

Had a first round there and absolutely hated it. The guy was a complete ass and they seemed like a pretty unimpressive bank. I can't imagine this helped either party much.
