As of a couple months ago RW Baird MKE was on fire. Might've cooled down but I doubt it given how hot M&A markets still are for sell side rep in their space. They run their analysts into the ground. Last time I talked to someone familiar he was saying analysts were working 7 or 8am to 2am depending on deal progress, but still pretty ruthless. However, great company to work for aside from the hours, very supportive from a career perspective and looks great on your resume. Everyone I've met over there are great people, though I'm not working for them of course.

Out of curiosity, why is it almost impossible to move up past VP?

Strong deal flow, great culture, cheap living, long hours, significant responsibility, nice career opportunities (pay for MBA and the chance to relocate offices for a year either domestically or abroad). Pretty much what Khayembii said. ER and ECM are housed in Milwaukee also, which may help provide a nice array of experiences and knowledge. Relatively high number of sell side engagements, while great from a fee-generating perspective, can limit your experience as an analyst, but this is a minor point in the grand scheme of everything. Have a friend who worked there a couple years back.

Don't think they pay for MBA's anymore. However just basing this on the fact that I haven't heard anyone tell me this and think someone would've if this was the case. Banking is pretty distinct from ER/ECM, too. At least, I know a bunch of people that worked in ER there and they've had almost no contact with bankers there.

They still pay for MBA. Like most places that do, you commit your summer and so many years after or else you must pay back whatever they gave you.

I realize ECM and ER are distinct from IB (M&A). Nonetheless, the fact that they all reside in Milwaukee may appeal to a certain type of individual.

IB is actually based out of Chicago. I realize it is separated by industry coverage, but still... it's Chicago vs. Milwaukee. Very few people would take the latter.
