    Pros

    The investment banking division has grown quickly over the past several years, so there has been good opportunities for advancement. This growth has been driven by low interest rates in the debt markets, which has led to increased deal flow since 2009 and has provided opportunities for STRH to take market share from competitors. Also, SunTrust executives have invested heavily in the STRH platform through the hiring of new bankers and increased capital commitments to STRH deals. Overall, a good investment banking experience in the Southeast.

    Cons

    Pay is 15-20% low relative to what you could earn at other investment banks. Rapid growth has pushed many bankers into leadership positions who don't have strong leadership qualities. New Associates are typically hired from 2nd tier MBA programs and/or don't have prior banking experience, so they often create workflow bottlenecks and inefficiencies as they get up the learning curve (they are also often terrible to work with/for from an analyst's perspective because they don't understand what it's like to work as an IB analyst).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build the advisory business to mitigate the inevitable deal flow decline when interest rates start to rise and existing clients don't want to refi their debt structures every 18 months. Don't try to compete with NYC firms for analyst talent, instead push the benefits of living in the Southeast and hire people who would rather not move to New York. Look to fill Associate positions with Analyst promotes before hiring MBA graduates without banking experience (there is a serious talent void at this position and many of your senior analysts are much more qualified).
