    Deal flow at WB will be better from what I hear (have a buddy who works at Opp)

    Blair has some good exit opps, I haven't seen to many from oppenhiemer...

    Have a friend in a similar position, he chose Oppenheimer based on better exit opportunities/name and the fact of being in NYC over Chicago

    Oppenheimer will have better exit opps. It was formerly CIBC World Markets, I think they place better into PE, esp. M&A, Lev Fin, Healthcare and Industrials. A couple of former CIBC people at Moelis too.

    not sure where you guys are getting your info, but i know that WB places very well into pe, especially their Chicago office. i havent heard very much at all from Oppenheimer in terms of exit opps.

    William Blair has a very formidable healthcare team. They dominate the HCIT space and win a lot of high profile deals. I'd take WB over Oppenheimer, even if you didn't join the healthcare group.

    Blair healthcare team are recognized in HCIT industry as has beens. Led by an aging curmudgeon in John Kibler, the company signs significantly more deals than it can close - primarily on inertia in the sector. The recent deal at Sentillion by AllenCo, and the IMNY and Premise deals done by Cooper at Montgomery (now ArchPoint) show much more market insight, initiative and talent in representation. Watch these guys - they will get the better companies and the better exits.
