GS Houston vs Jefferies Houston

I know both are pretty much top dogs in energy and have equally brutal cultures / hours. Assuming I only want to stay in Houston and am fine with energy / O&G PE exits, which one of these maximizes comp / exits? I heard GS pays AN1s around 120-140k and JEF is closer to 190k to 210k for top-bucket. Any insight?


Jef is a volume shop working on smaller deals in general. GS was just on the two largest corporate transactions in the industry. Both grind and have horrendous cultures.


Any idea if there is a material difference in exits for Houston PE / HF?
