Testimonials

See What the AGC Team Has to Say...

Thank you for a great 12 weeks, I’ve certainly learned a lot, and got a good deal more of research experience than I bargained for. The culture at the firm kept me energized to take on new challenges every day. The frequent sporting outings and charity events always gave me something to look forward to outside of work during the weeks. I have been fortunate to have many mentors here, and truly appreciate the time spent to walk me through my mistakes or explain new concepts. When I first arrived, I quickly noticed that it was commonplace to address the firm as a team - while at many places this is just rhetoric, my 12 weeks here have really shown that AGC embodies that word. I have seen it all the way from the an extremely tight analyst group, up through the PMs, MDs, Admins, and Executives; when a deal is on the line, everyone digs in to drive it through, no matter their predefined roles or assignments. It is this energy that will inevitably bring me back next August/September to be grilled in hopes of a full time position. Until then, I wish you best of luck and fruitful intern classes to come. I will certainly recommend the program to the best and brightest.

I enjoyed my experience at AGC and owe it to the people and culture that the firm breeds. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to contribute on many active deals alongside my assigned analyst mentor, who walked me through real-life situations and how to deal with them. For example, after the Brexit, my mentor tested me on how he would reassess an investment in London (where else would someone take the time to do that).

Working at AGC has been a blast—everyone is smart and hard working while delegating a lot of responsibilities to the junior staff. But the Team doesn't just achieve stellar results and deal closures through hard work; a fun and engaging culture is also part of the recipe. From outings, Sox games, and friendly athletic competitions, the whole team really gets to know each other and have a great time as well. The kind of experience one gets here is definitely unique among IBs, and something that one will never get at a bulge bank.

AGC has a great training program for interns and provides a lot of hands on experience throughout the summer. The ability to work with a number of analysts and project managers meant we all learned a lot. The culture is great around the office and the interns are treated well by senior partners.

During my internship at AGC Partners, we had one of our weekly intern meetings with Ben Howe (the CEO). I still had a few questions afterwards and was able to spontaneously knock on his office door and have a casual conversation with him where he took time from his day to answer what I had to ask, and more. Not only was the CEO of an investment bank willing to sit down and personally teach an intern, but he encourages questions from the outset. I’m not sure what else to say besides the fact that this is the best culture I’ve experienced in a professional environment.
