Your first Two Years

Successful assimilation into the firm is our highest priority, and we have a robust process in place to facilitate your integration during the first two years, with an emphasis on your first six months. This includes support from Integration Stakeholders, whose responsibility is to support the transition of all of our new Direct Entry Partners (DEPs) and Managing Directors (MDs). Each of these professionals contributes to the success of our newcomers through different roles and responsibilities.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in our Direct Entry Induction Program and Direct Entry Leadership Summit. The Direct Entry Induction Program is a function-specific program focused on structure and organization, strategy, market development, operations, and risk management. The Direct Entry Leadership Summit is an annual two-day program that provides senior firm leadership the opportunity to share strategic priorities, vision, and current programming/projects being undertaken in Clients & Markets, Innovation and Enterprise Solutions, Governance, Technology, Professionalism & Integrity, Human Capital, and Global Initiatives. It provides an unparalleled learning and networking opportunity.
