I have received offers from Citi, Barclays, Deutsche for full-time associate level trading positions and I am trying to make a decision soon. The Citi offer is in either 1)Rates derivatives 2)FX short-term interest rates 3) FX options (I have the option to choose among these 3 desks). Barclays is for rates with flexibility as to which desk to be placed on. Deutsche is for FX (more of a quant driven trading role but flexibility in moving into short term rates and cross currency basis).
I am wondering about the pros/cons of trading fx vs rates and also which products within rates and fx may be a good place to begin one's career. And also any feedback with regards to firm choice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again.
