PJT London vs Citi London

I have 2 outstanding offers for a SA 2023 position at Citi and PJT London- any thoughts/ advice on which to choose would be very much appreciated!

Contrary to a lot of stuff that gets posted here, PJT in London is no where close to being as good as PJT in the US. If you simply care about higher comp (which isn't a bad thing...) then sure go for PJT but don't kid yourself that you'll work on anywhere near as many deals as you would at any other bulge / Citi. Anyone who tries to convince you otherwise about deal flow is full of sh*t...fairly easy to see what deals get announced in the market are and who the advisors are. Rarely see PJT. Yes, fully appreciate that some deals go announced without advisors necessarily named, but that is not as common and certainly doesn't account for the gap in deal volume. 

 

This is mainly for M&A though, their RSSG platform is strong in London

 

Sure. Unless you have a specific, well thought through, super compelling reason for doing restructuring (which in my opinion would be odd to have, particularly for an analyst with likely <2 years of grand total career experience), most people would be better of doing regular way coverage / M&A work. In that case, frankly any bulge in the UK would be better than PJT if looking at deal experience gained. Comp is another discussion.
