    yeah i'd go top bb or top boutique. do you honestly have offers? how could you turn down Goldman for some MM firm??

    You must have been kicked in the head repeatedly as a kid. jeferies and other MM banks are probably the most disgusting toilets of crap in investment banking. A great cancer on the Wall Street BB's.

    1styear's shit is really getting old and predictable. It was funny at first but he's beat the joke into the ground.

    He's a big enough douchebag that I don't think he's joking, he may actually look down on anything not BAML or not a BB.

    They are all very different roles that teach different skillsets and present different opportunities. I'd say market conditions shouldn't have anything to do with your decision.

    A MM can be either boutique or not. MM just states the size of deals done. A boutique is a small shop usually focused on M&A/restructuring or both, without all the debt/equity/capital markets or trading that goes along with it. Size of bankers usually determines boutique and size of deals determines MM.

    I am going to start FT at a MM bank but if I got an offer at a BB would have taken that.
