Citi Global Markets or GS Corporate Treasury (both in HK)

Hello everyone!

I got offers from both Citi and GS for the 2023 SA program. Citi offered me a SA position in Global markets, whereas GS offered me Corporate Treasury. Which one should I choose?

Hello, I have just received a call from Citi offering me a 2023 SA in Markets. She asked whether I had offers elsewhere and whether I could commit to the offer at that moment. I said yes since my other offers are in Brazil and GS in Corporate Treasury. However, I wonder whether in these situations I should actually try to bargain with them in terms of signing bonuses, etc. Is there such a thing or was I right in accepting it right away?

You were right to accept right away.

As far as I know:

• You can't negotiate an SA position.

• Citi have the best paying SA program anyway, so you wouldn't have much to negotiate with.

No such things as signing bonus negotiation for SA. Never have heard case for FT grad roles. Only props and Hfs do that.
