I read some other threads, but I didn't find a whole lot...
So, I had a valuations session at my business school, where a Houlihan VP and analyst ran me through some models. They pitched to me the FAS group at their firm, and it sounded pretty interesting. The hours seemed to be 60-80/week and the pay sounded comparable to M&A IB.
I particularly liked the "neutral" advisory role that FAS has in deal flow.
What are everyone's opinions on Houlihan FAS? - open forum
