I am in the interviewing stage for 3 financial companies, and I need some advice on which is a better career. I have a masters in financial engineering, and I am just starting out in finance field.
I am currently interviewing as financial analyst with Key Bank, financial advisor with Morgan Stanley, and Analytic Consultant 2 for wells fargo. I am concern about job security, work culture and environment, and developing a career.

All interviews are going great so far.

I would deeply appreciate comments and insights. Thank you.

If you have a MFE, you're overqualified for all of them - especially financial advisory (unless that is something you want to do). My personal preference would lead me to 1) Wells Fargo 2) Key Bank 3) Morgan Stanley.

I only knock MS because I wouldn't like the process of finding clients. Many programs want new employees to start with friends and relatives. No thanks.


@Bobby, thanks for your response. I have same concerns for MS plus the position is only salaried for 18 months, and I don't have any networks in the state where the job is. I am schedules for second interview next week with the VP of business development. Do you have suggestions of how to get first job with MFE because most jobs I see require some experience, and I applied to about 400 related jobs
