Big 4 US vs UKNot really on topic but when reading these forums I have noticed there is a big difference in the level of respect Big 4 audit receives in the UK vs. the US. To put it short, what is the reason for this difference? Why is Big 4 considered to be more prestigious in the UK? Is it harder to break... 2 years 3 months

matrix reviewOP, how many moves have you seen from BO to MO specifically into credit risk. From some if the posts here it looks like CR is one of the best non-FO places to be in terms of experience and comp (modeling, credit analysis, etc) with same base as IBD and 20-30% bonus. Is this the case at your firm... 1 year 3 months
matrix review[quote=GoVolckYourself]from low-ish GPA to comments about wanting to hang out and leave early etc - the op doesn't sound like much of an overachiever (by any stretch). While i laud work life balance and doing what you love, i don't think prospectives should settle for mediocrity and apathy. Find... 1 year 3 months

You also have ABL facilities, bridge loans, etc. There is also a difference between corp. banking at a BB vs. corp. banking at a MM/regional bank. 1. Client Size - Corp... 1 year 4 months
Why corporate banking instead of investment...Corp banking over IBD: 1. Long term career potential - not much of an "up and out" culture like in IBD. As long as you are competent you can move into an associate role after your 3rd year in most places, you won't need to go back for an MBA to advance. Also to get from associate to VP in the... 1 year 4 months

Gtown vs. Vandy vs. UVA vs. Wake Forest vs. EmoryOP keep in mind this is regarding how much of a target a school is for IBD vs. academic/educational quality and the overall prestige of the school. With that in mind, in terms of IBD recruiting it is easily: Georgetown > UVA > Emory > Vandy > WF While these schools are pretty much on par in... 1 year 4 months
Commercial Banking Analyst1Hi guys I can chime in here. 1. 60k base and 5k sign on is pretty standard across the BBs for commercial banking so yes this is a standard/competitive offer. 2. Corp banking at a BB would be more lucrative - 70k base with 10 sign on. 3. Jumping to PE/VC/AM will be very difficult as the skill... 1 year 4 months
It's quittin' timeOut if curiosity whats your reason for quitting, from the sound of your post it sounds like you are lateral ing to another BB group or are you getting out of IBD to move into corp lending? 1 year 5 months

Big 4....How Much Does Location MatterFor those who want to be finance, I'd recommend at all cost to avoid big4 audit and just aim for F500 roles or any other relevant, transferable experience because it will be very difficult to transition later on. From what I have heard in NYC there is a wall between acct and finance, making it... 1 year 5 months
