I just want to thank you for all the help you've given me so far and ask another question about Summer Analyst positions. Here's my situation:
-I've already signed with an "elite boutique" (Greenhill/Moelis/BX/Evrcr) for the summer and am very happy with my offer. My bank said I have to work an 8 week program, but that I can work more as a function of my own availability and their deal flow. (Let's call this Bank A.)
-Upon signing, I let all the other banks I was still talking to know that I appreciated their time and consideration, but had become unavailable for this summer.
-I recently received a call from one of the banks (Bank B) I had said no to after signing [a solid 25-30 man boutique that's still young, up-and-coming, high deal-flow, strong senior bankers, great pedigrees, etc.] regarding my summer plans AFTER my SA at Bank A. Because I go to a school that's not on the semester calendar, I would have a decent 5-6 week break after my SA at Bank A. Knowing this, Bank B asked if I would be willing to sign a 2-4 week contract with them after my completion at Bank A, and seemed to suggest they'd make it worth my while. Strangely, I haven't been to their office or even met the guys face-to-face yet. This mini-offer is based entirely on a pretty extensive networking attack I sent to the Senior Bankers, my resume/experience, and two in-depth phone conversations I had with some Junior Bankers before I signed at Bank A. That being said, I have absolutely no reason to doubt the legitimacy of this bank and have a lot of respect for their practice.
Of course my priority is with Bank A, not only because it's the unambiguous superior offer, but also because I'm contractually obligated to make sure I don't have any conflicts with them. Having not experienced the culture at either bank yet, Bank A is definitely where I'm leaning as far as FT is concerned. That being said, I could extend my SA stint at Bank A by 2 weeks (10 instead of 8 to help with my chances of a FT offer) and still have the time for at least a 3 week program at Bank B. Is this weird to do? To what extent should I disclose these plans with Bank A? I'm obviously not going to hesitate to talk to HR of Bank A about this, but I want to know the extent to which that's necessary. If my Summer contract at Bank A is finished, is it necessary to tell them where I'll be immediately afterwards? Will the knowledge that I'm finishing the summer at Bank B affect my chances of an FT offer at Bank A?
