theharvardbanker:
This reply is coming from someone, who has commented complete nonsense on several of my posts, who describes himself as follows according to one of his posts: "I'm 25 and wasn't able to land in IB out of school or lateral in."

This is telling to the kind of people who are active in creating the nonsense jokes seen in this thread and on WSO in general. Good luck tearing your hair to get into a "Top 30" MBA, spending less time on here to add 0 value will serve you better on your GMAT.

Through my short time on here, I found that WSO is like the College Confidential of IB - hopeless people that need an outlet to fill the fact that they can't actually succeed in real life. Btw I'm deleting my account.

It was a pleasure, sir

There is also that forum topic that compares BB banks to houses of GoT.. those comparisons probably will give you a romantic idea about each firm (if you're a GoT fan)

YungMonc I appreciate you translating the difference for me between a public and private company.

I like the list which you gave. For every bank, could you or anyone else give me 2-3 bullet points what the core strengths of the bank are and what differentiates it in the industry? Also, let's just stick to bulge bracket:

Goldman Sachs (1) (2) (3)

Morgan Stanley (1) (2) (3)

JP Morgan (1) (2) (3)

Barclays (1) (2) (3)

BAML(1) (2) (3)

Credit Suisse (1) (2) (3)

Deutsche Bank (1) (2) (3)

UBS (1) (2) (3)

Citigroup (1) (2) (3)

I will do this for you for $3,500

You are probably wanting to understand which product groups / coverage teams each of the bulge bracket banks are better known for?

theharvardbanker:
GoldBoy Exactly right, or which area of investment banking each is best known for. For instance, I know MS is known for its handling of IPOs, but that is somewhat superficial and I want to know more about each. Could you help me with the 9 which I listed?

Try checking some topics like these:

https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/top-groups-at-goldman-sachs

https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/boutiques-and-their-top-industry-groups

https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/deutsche-bank-best-ib-groups

Just to give some examples.. try searching for "group" or "team" in the search engine too. Hope that helps

Hahaha, this is an amazing troll job. I was dying at the clean bullet point layout.

I imagine if someone actually put this together (and they have...), they could include a bigger instructional package and charge $$.

If you aren't smart enough to use the search bar or hard working enough to figure it out on your own, you aren't gonna hack it in any job, much less IB.
