I have 2(London) offers for the IB divisions at and and would really appreciate some advice.
I really liked DB's culture and the way they go about their business, the division has a great team of people. They seemed very supportive and they really focus on the personal development of/analysts. I also find DB to be more prestigious but that's just purely down to my personal subjective opinion.
was very corporate during my visits but at the same time there was a feeling of everything being grand which I quite liked. The institution itself is massive and operates on such a huge scale, DB doesn't even compare in that sense. Also from what I understand it is way ahead in M&A than DB, or at least the numbers show it. However I'm not sure about how significant the London office is, whilst DB's London office is its flagship branch for IB.
What are your thoughts, what would you choose?
