Offer Received: PIMCO PM Trader SA VS. Barclays S&T SA

Heard back from both PIMCO and Barclays with offers for SA intern for summer 2023, wondering if anyone can give some insights into each of the programs and which one may be better for me. The PIMCO role is under PM team as a Trader SA (Newport Beach), while the Barclays one is in S&T for SArole (NYC Midtown). I am hoping to exit in either quant or HF but not sure which one offers better opportunities.

There's no better place than Newport Beach in the country.

Seriously? Pimco is one of the top buyside firms out there. Take it and don't look back.
