Merrill Lynch S&T VS Nomura IBD?
Hi. I'd really appreciate your opinions about my first career!
I have job offers from ML FICC sales and from Nomura IBD and I'm deciding which one to take.
Given I initially wanted to work at IBD, I should take the latter.
I heard, however, work experiences at one of the Bulge Bracket companies make your resume stand out when you move to other firms.
My long-term goals are to help my family's business (not in finance) and to earn money to set up an NGO about domestic violence, hopefully in 10 years. So I wouldn't permanently work for either job.
Any opinion from any point of view would be super helpful! Work-life balance, salary, networking etc.
Thank you very much in advance.
