“A team in investment banking is one where you get to work closely with people of all levels, from the senior management to people your own level, to solve complex and different problems every single day.

Baird does a really good job of providing the resources necessary to learn and grown as an analyst or as a junior banker, and they make sure that their door is always open, that you can come to them and ask for them, if you want any additional resources.

Every day, I wake up looking forward to seeing my teammates, going into work and that camaraderie that we have on the desk and in the bull pen.”
