At what point does "any type" of IB experience become not very helpful?
I see people on here saying IB experience > anything else (if you want to move to a BB or top firm)
But is working for a small, no-name boutique really all that better than working at a more prestigious firm, but doing something not necessarily related to IB?
I'm thinking in terms or B-school opportunities, where you're more likely to get into a top school working at a more prestigious firm than doing IB work at a small firm that probably has limited deal flow.
After B-School you have a second chance to get in as an Associate
