BB Corporate Banking or International Bank DCM? - Urgent

What would be better on the resume? Honestly no clue what I want to do post banking (don’t think PE), but wasn’t sure what would give me a better experience/more flexibility.

Think Deutsche/Barclays type BB CB, or BNP/HSBC/TD DCM.

 

It is a question. DCM, along with ECM, is the worst product group with abysmal exits. At least with Corp banking you can lateral into IB or any of the products group assuming you do your homework and network appropriately

 

DCM is in IBD so no lateral necessary at a time when the lateral market is completely shut off.

Exits for DCM are not abysmal as you suggest, just not PE or HF, more like PC.

It would be easier to lateral into coverage or RX from DCM than corporate banking.

Comp is also the same as coverage at the junior level and hours are less.
