Hi Guys- I have a first round coming up next week with Cowen for their SA IBD. I have a good idea of what to expect out of the interview, but I was wondering if some people could chime in on what the current state of Cowen is. I searched through the forums but there doesn't seem to be any recent discussion. Mainly interested in pay, exit opps, and how good their HC and Tech coverage groups are compared to other MMs.

Anyone have any context to share on Cowen? They are ranked #17 Vault Banking 50, and are above shops like Citi, Lazard, Barclays, Guggenheim, Jefferies, Stifel. Are these rankings accurate? Has Cowen been growing lately? I know their Healthcare IB group is good, but anything else? What does the long-term picture look like for them? Exit opps for analysts?

What are their reputations? Exit opps? Culture? Compensation? I would love to hear your opinions... It is regards to a SA position...

Hey Guys, Just got invited for a second round interview with Cowen. Not exactly sure which division but it's either technology or Healthcare. Can anyone let me know what I can expect as far as questions go? How hard are the interviews? Are there brain teasers? Anything I should know about Cowen specifically that might help me out. Thanks a bunch guys!

Hi All I'm graduating from a semi-target in December, pre-med major, 3.5+ GPA. I'm wondering if anyone could share some thoughts on Cowen Healthcare and Leerink in terms of prestige, deal flow(# and size), and exit opportunities? Obviously I'm interested in Healthcare IB. I know Cowen is a top boutique but having trouble with their HC group. However, I've never heard of Leerink until recently but I was told they are comparable to a typical HC group in a BB, is this true? Any thoughts would be much appreciated, Thanks.

So I've given up on BBs and elite boutiques (or rather they've given up on me), but I'm on the grind and about to go to 2nd rounds at Macquarie and Cowen. Let's say I get offers, what would be a better choice, Cowen Healthcare or MacCap Infrastructure? At this point, I don't really have a personal preference for group - they would both be good as I'm just starting in IB. I guess in terms of overall culture, opportunity, etc? Thanks.

Trying to get a feel for the culture / hours at Cowen in SF. The threads that are out there are pretty stale and don't contain much info. Any help would be much appreciated.

what S&T firms are out there for small companies that have lets say $1 to 3 Million in cash they want to invest? i doubt Goldman or JP Morgan will seek clients of this size, but what about a companies like Cowen, Piper Jaffray, or Needham &co? would the small business still execute at market rates of 3¢ a share?

Has anybody heard back from Cowen IBD in NY about Summer Analyst positions (either an offer or rejection)? Just trying to get a gauge having not heard back after my super day...
