The opportunity to be a part of leading investment banking firm based in Shanghai was really appealing to me. I wanted to work at a company that is engaged in global business across a variety of sectors, and E. J. McKay offered a unique platform for continued learning and accelerated growth.
My colleagues are incredibly bright and talented, and the work environment is simultaneously professional and easy-going. You can expect that everyone on the team will pull their weight and contribute to the work at hand.
Every deal or project I work on is different and exposes me to a new country, a new angle, a new product, etc. Through E. J. McKay, I have also had extensive opportunities to travel throughout China and internationally in Europe, America, and more.
I have learned so many things working for E. J. McKay and living in China. Because on a daily basis we deal with companies and people from all over the world, I feel I have truly developed an international perspective. Most importantly, I have developed lifelong friendships and a global network of relationships that will stay with me forever.
