“Senior Leadership is extremely understanding of work/life balance and are constantly checking in to ensure everyone is in good spirits. They do a phenomenal job of caring about employees.”
“The best aspect is simply the focus that senior bankers put on promoting a good quality of life. One of our first training sessions was focused on maintaining physical and mental health in the job while also setting a clear expectation for senior bankers to promote a strong quality of life. Senior bankers are always willing to put in the hours alongside junior bankers to ensure work gets done as efficiently and effectively as possible, helping to minimize long hours as much as possible.”
“Strong work/life balance with minimal weekend work and generally early end times, with limited exceptions. Flexible vacation policy that you can actually use. Seniors respect your time and personal life.”
