Restructuring versus M&A
Hi everyone! I'm a prospective IB candidate (freshman at a Midwestern target) and I'm interested in Restructuring. However, I'm debating between pursuing restructuring positions at EB's versus pursuing more typical M&A and industry groups at BB's. I really like restructuring, but I have a few concerns. I would appreciate any advice.
I know that going into restructuring usually means going into a smaller bank. Would not have the network or name of a huge BB prove harmful? I'm also not sure at this point if I would stay in finance for the long-term if that has any influence on your advice.
I know that restructuring has been quite busy during the pandemic. So, being a student right now (I've got three and a half years left), would go into restructuring in what's likely to be a booming economy going to be bad for my career?
I'm not sure about which role I might want to pursue after the analyst program (whether it, PE, VC, Corp Development, or even something outside of business). Would going into RSSG leave me pigeonholed?
