Most Helpful Positive Review

Former employee - Managing Director

The culture depends on the group. I was in the Restructuring group for 13 years and now it best. There was always a mix of different personalities among the different Managing Directors, which made it a great place to learn how to and how not to manage. The work load is demanding, but that is not a bad thing for someone building deal experience. You need a thick skin to weather the various temperaments in the office, more so if you are a woman. I loved the culture for many years, but that was before things changed.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Associate

If you are a client, they will treat you like gold and their work product really can't be beat. But as an employee, watch out - they do not value their people. Burn out is high, even for investment banking -- unnecessarily, by the way; there are simple things they could do to make life better but I don't think it would occur to management to do so. ALL THAT SAID, the reception I've gotten from people who see Houlihan Lokey on my resume is generally positive.
