The Real Nick Leeson, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Depends on what you're interested in doing. If you're interested in M&A then go with the boutique; if you like Capital Markets better, then go with the BB. If you don't care about either and just want to exit to the buyside after 2-3 years, I would go with the boutique as well. If they really have a good deal flow in a particual sector then your chances are solid whthin that particular area.

I'd say the boutique would be easier if it is somewhat well-known. After one year you can apply to a Second Year Analyst position and hopefully you'd have developed enough skills for the position. My guess is that you can also do it from the capital markets job but it can be harder as most of the work you do won't be transferable to M&A.
