Macquarie capital Advisors vs. Funds ManagementI'm currently looking to join one of these groups and am trying to weigh the pros and cons. Both fall under Macquarie's IB group but what from what I hear, the Advisory folks get larger bonuses and work more hours. If that is true, how big is the gap between the two? Also, how does the work culture... 6 years 7 months
Big 4 Tax specialist Vs. IB opeationsI've got a tough decision to make between two job offers that I currently have. The first is a tax specialist at a big 4 and the other is a 2nd yr operations analyst position at a BB investment bank in NYC. I have a CPA and can't figure out which route to take.

There are some like Goldman that can very much be a meritocracy, while others like Citi that are a total waste of time. You also have to be at the right place at the right time, i.e. luck.

Macquarie USAWhen you say Macquarie provides options to move jobs to different functions within the bank, can it be as drastic as moving from Funds Management to MacCap/IBG? If so, how frequently does this happen and what are some of the requirements? 7 years 7 months
Big 4 Tax specialist Vs. IB opeationsThats a great suggestion. In fact, that is something the ops position does offer. It appears to be a very hands on position on the Finance/accounting side of things with exposure to many areas of the frim (i.e. tax research, F/S consolidations, ad hoc reporting, and financial analysis on some of... 7 years 7 months
