BB vs. MMSo I've been fortunate enough to get a handful of offers this fall for full-time jobs- 3 BBs and one MM. I've cut it down to just two- CS San Fran or Jefferies Broadview in Boston. Not looking to have someone tell me where to go, but I'd love to hear from some of the bankers on the board what... 8 years 1 month
Bear, MLI'll be interviewing for FT offers with these two banks and want to hear what you guys think. I know Bear is getting hit hard lately. What are their best groups?

Nova is a bit less fun because they don't have D-1 football and are outside Philly, but BC is not like MIT/Harvard/BU - they're a solid 30-45 minute T ride into Boston too. If... 4 years 7 months

I am sure there are some places that pay more than that but those rough figures are a good place to start. Things start to vary widely as you get to senior associate / VP, as some places continue to pay junior guys in cash... 4 years 7 months

Probably not a traditional banking experience out of college but worth looking into. You'd have the chance to work with plenty of other PE firms and maybe move on to a bigger place after a few years. 4 years 7 months
Not a huge representation in banking but BU does...Not a huge representation in banking but BU does have a fair share of bankers out there and they do a good job of networking with each other. Definitely take 2-3 courses in accounting, even if it's just like night school or something on top of your regular work load. Will help you out... 4 years 7 months

While it might not be as extreme, the London offices are at best a plurality in terms of local talent to international and for many there are more continental Europeans and US expats on Canary Wharf than Brits. 5 years 3 weeks

North Beach is a much better option if you find a nice place - plenty of good bars, easy walk to work and not far to Marina or SoMA either. Russian Hill/Polk St. is also a great place to live.
