CONSULTING vs. I-BANKINGIB
Making a decision between choosing a full-time offer in investment banking or consulting -
I went to Ivy League school on east coast and passed out in 2009; I spent the last two years as a computer science and mathematics teacher in middle school.
I have offers from bulge bracket investment banks, namely Credit Suisse and Citi, for generalist IB analyst (group placement is contingent upon summer analyst training and interviews) AND also have job offers from consulting firms, namely BCG, Bridgespan and Monitor.
I want to go to and apply to business school in two years and am trying to figure out which route (IB or Consulting) and with which firm are better options for me. Please help and respond wiht all thuoghts and comments on (1) investment banking vs. non-profit/for-profit consulting, and (2) the exit opportunities from these firms (emphasis on consulting firms), (3) positioning for business school, and (4) salary!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
