Funniest

My buddy just finished his first year in the UA Fin Div, said it's an absolute sweatshop and had to do ridiculous tasks like helping athletes such as Jordan Spieth with taxes and finding good mortgage rates. Not sure how true some of his stories were, but definitely would not recommend their finance analyst program.

 
Most Helpful

A few of these listed already but will go by bank based on my own interactions: 

GS - can’t go wrong anywhere here, but TMT and FIG are the standouts

MS - M&A 

JP - HC 

BofA - REGAL and LevFin

CS - Sponsors 

Barclays - Power

UBS - M&A and levfin 

RBC - Power and M&A 

Blair - tech 

Baird - industrials 

jefferies - Levfin, HC, and energy 

CITI - honestly don’t know, think they are decent everywhere but don’t really have one standout group in mind

PWP - healthcare

evercore - tech 

PJT - RSSG

HL - Consumer, RX

edit: adding more

Macquarie: infra 

DB: Levfin 

MOE LA

BMO: metals/mining levfin OK but they don’t really lead that many deals 

Lincoln Intl.: Healthcare and industrials 

Piper: healthcare, specifically med tech 

RayJay: tech 

Edit: even more by popular demand

BGL - yes THE browns gibbons Lang: environmental services, dominate the middle market space. If you’re literally into garbage go work for BGL

Cowen: cannabis and mobility technology 

cantor: healthcare ECM

GUGG: RX, tech enabled services 

Roths: RX

harris Williams: cranking out MM sponsor mandates of all kinds, especially HC

keybanc: industrials
