Help needed - SA at HSBC M&A or Macquarie IBD?
First time posting on WSO, and i was hoping to get some advice from you guys. I received an offer from HSBC Strategic Transactions Group, which is pretty much M&A, and one from Macquarie for IBD. I just want to go to whichever place has better dealflow and will give me the most experience/responsibilities. Where do you guys think I should go? If it came down to culture, I'd go to MacQ, but I've heard a lot about their poor bonuses from last year and their weak reputation in the U.S., both of which concern me. HSBC seems to have a steady stream of cross-border transactions. Which do you think is better? Any advice/feedback/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
