Goldman S&T SA vs Wells Fargo IBD SA

Hey all,
So I've gotten offers from both. I do want to end up getting a FT IB offer, but obviously the Goldman name on the resume is a lot stronger than the Wells Fargo name...

Opinions? I've got until Thursday to decide for both.

Also, Wells is a platform offer, and GS is rotational.

THANKS!

Edit: Do you think itll be easier to transition from Goldman S&T into a BB IBD or from Wells IBD into a BB IBD?

If you want to do IB then take the IB summer.

Just out of curiosity, what is a platform offer? I'm assuming it means you'll have a FT offer extended to you if you successfully complete the SA program, but not really sure what it is. Kinda new to this

No it just means that you've been accepted to IBD, no preference for groups/location. Wells has a "sell day" in march to decide groups and location.

Do well at WF, get the offer and you should have no trouble getting BB full-time interviews. Although, if you turn out to like WF, it might be a good idea to consider staying - many consider Wells to be a bulge bracket contender and its doing well for itself.

Hey man, what did you decide? Just wondering because I have a similar decision and I'm wondering what your thought process was. Thinking I'll go with the IBD offer as well, although the name isn't nearly as good.
