Business Formal Attire for Upcoming Placement Day...I have a placement day coming up in the next couple of weeks. Right now I only have a light grey suit and a black suit. I know the ideal suits are navy and charcoal, but given the two suits I have, which would be the best to wear? (The picture is the color of the grey suit I own) 2 years 1 month
Excel Shortcut Question--Alt E S T not working...All in the title. Whenever I use Alt E S T, the shortcut stops at the Alt E S and then puts a T into the select cell. Is there something in my Excel options or something that is preventing this from working properly? 2 years 1 month
If Not At A Top BB--Exit Opps?Out of curiosity-- If you're not in a top group at a top BB, do you still have decent PE/HF exit opps? If not, what happens to those analysts if they're not asked back for a third year? Do they fade into Bolivian? 2 years 1 month
Top Groups/Bottom Groups at Bank of America...Curious about the top/bottom groups at the firm and what their b-school placement looks like. Any help is appreciated. 2 years 2 months
Barclays vs Citi--DiscussionHey Guys, I'd really like to know more about these banks in terms of their top coverage groups, job security, future outlook, culture, exit opps, etc. Really anything people in the know could share with me, as I'm very interested in both of these firms' NYC offices.

Interview Question - MergerSomeone please correct me if I'm wrong here, but if we're assuming a stock for stock deal then we're assuming that the stock issued will only cover the purchase price of the target's equity, while the net debt of the target will be paid for / refinanced using new debt / cash from the acquirer.... 3 days 13 hours
All-stock M&A deal: what's combined...[quote="TorontoMonkey1328"]In an all stock deal, PF Market Cap A = Market Cap A + Market Cap T + PV of synergies[/quote] Not to nit, but the synergies would also be tax-adjusted using the target's marginal tax rate, if I'm not mistaken. Also, be sure to use Market Cap T calculated using the... 3 days 14 hours
Lowest Analyst Bonuses for 2015[quote="hardlyworking"]You're aware that most banks are now on a calendar system, aka paying out stubs to first years. Your question really only applies to non-first years, and if you get a terrible bonus at that point, you should probably leave the industry as your time is likely limited in it,... 3 days 14 hours
GS increases analyst base[quote=Addinator]Not sure why you got shit thrown at you. Makes sense that would happen. It appears to me that they are simply moving money around from bonuses to comp, giving you more to live on rather than giving you a massive lump at the end. My firm started doing much the same thing (albeit... 8 months 4 weeks

SEO Offers[quote=pphi]I will also say that their GPA's might be an exception to the norm. I know a couple other SEO students from 3 years ago - they all had >3.5 GPA's; however, not the same caliber as you would find with kids who got in the 'regular' way (Networking, tons of EC's and the usual nonsense... 1 year 3 months
SEO Offers[quote=pphi]I'm a senior, but there are 2 juniors at my non-target school that received offers. (IBD and S&T) I am utterly surprised at the caliber of students SEO recruits. I know both of them and IMHO, they both are of very low caliber - sub 3.0 GPA, no extracurriculars. The same was the... 1 year 3 months
IBD Analyst --> Biglaw[quote=CHItizen]Have you worked in IB before? After working in IB (and seeing what kind of work gets dropped on the lawyers), I doubt you will ever want to work in big law.[/quote] All of this. 1 year 3 months
