Hear what they have to say…
"Shea & Company is an amazing place to begin your career. Given the lean nature of the firm, first-year analysts are given significant responsibility on new projects and are constantly having direct contact with clients. The team at Shea places a strong emphasis on the development of its analyst class, from the associates up to managing partners all take time to teach and mentor you on projects. The expertise I built in enterprise software at Shea was invaluable as I recruited for the buyside, as most of my peers lacked expertise in the sector, having worked on maybe a couple of software deals in the TMT group of a big bank."Oscar Guerra INVESTOR SOFTBANK
“Having started as an analyst at Shea & Company, I immediately recognized that it is not only a great place to start a career, but also an ideal platform to build a career long term. The opportunities for growth and advancement are nearly limitless — the firm has a culture of fostering employee growth and history of promoting from within. 16+ years into my journey at Shea & Company, I am still being challenged and learning everyday.”Brad McCarthy MANAGING DIRECTOR SHEA & CO.
"Shea & Co was a special place to start my career, because it offers a firm with an incredibly deep knowledge of enterprise software coupled with an organization that truly cares about the well-being of its individuals. Being in a position now where I’m able to interact with dozens of technology-focused investment banks only makes those points more evident, and the skills I learned as an analyst at Shea are still used on a daily basis in my current role."Josh Owczarski ASSOCIATE WELSH, CARSON, ANDERSON & STOWE
"Shea & Co. has been an incredible place to kickstart and build my career. The attributes that differentiate the firm are (i) focused expertise in enterprise software, (ii) a deep commitment to delivering high-quality execution for our clients, and importantly, (iii) a collaborative and supportive firm culture. From my first day on the job, I was able to gain meaningful exposure to high-caliber deals, which accelerated my path up the learning curve and deepened my understanding of the enterprise software space. Beyond deal work, I have found the culture at Shea & Co. to be a strong foundation for personal and team growth — everyone has a voice and an opportunity to contribute to the firm’s success, and people are incredibly supportive of individuals' goals and development."Marina Marlow VICE PRESIDENT SHEA & CO.
"Working with the Shea & Company team was a formative experience for my career. In addition to better understanding the software market and how to navigate the M&A environment, I learned the importance of working with good people. The firm is at the forefront of middle market software M&A, and its senior leadership creates a friendly and supportive culture. I count the team at Shea as among the best in the industry, and the firm truly stands out as a great place to work."Josh Weinman SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT H.I.G. CAPITAL
"We believe that we start to win, and to build a great firm, by recruiting highly talented and motivated people right out of school. If you trust and train your junior team members, put opportunity and responsibility in front of them, they will continually amaze you with their effort, ideas and productivity."Michael Shea MANAGING DIRECTOR SHEA & CO.
