Anyone have any insight on the culture/Wlb at Union Square Advisors? It is a tech focused IB in SF. Looks like a great firm, but they seem a little lean in the VP and Associate positions now.

Tech wlb is always tough. No matter where you go. Smaller shops = always pitching trying to win business. BB’s = strong deal flow and pipeline but tech IBD seems to have the toughest culture across most banks (GS, JPM, BofA). Leaner the deal team = more work.

Haven’t heard much on USA but teams with low retention/tenure are typically red flags

I haven't heard of them before. Are they a smaller firm?

Small people-wise. Well known in tech

they re a sweatshop - had a bunch of turnover last year. they re solid though. have a lot of deals w strong software companies. few former guy had some good pe exits

I assume it’s because you are overworked and want out by the end of it. You do build very good skills from the grind, but at the cost of your soul and many sleepless nights

I heard their upper management can get pretty bad, but it's a small, lean company that could be a good pit stop in your career.

Have heard culture is pretty good but that you’ll get WORKED.

Very thin at the mid level right now
