Wall Street Oasis, the popular website for those working in finance, has ranked the following investment banks and financial advisory firms, based on the website’s readers reviews, as places recommended to others to work.

Evercore
Blackstone
Harris Williams
Goldman Sachs
William Blair
Robert W. Baird
JPMorgan
Morgan Stanley
BMO Capital Markets
Lazard

What is striking about the list is that seven out of the 10 firms are boutiques or advisory firms that seek to do business with companies in the middle to lower market. When it comes to the firms employees are most proud to work at, it is a similar story, according to Wall Street Oasis.

Boutiques and those servicing the middle market make up seven of the top 10 firms, even if some of the firms are more than 150 years old and have a global network of offices, such as Lazard and Rothschild.
