I summered in a GS coverage group this summer (not FIG or TMT) and did not like my experience (loved the work but didn't like my coverage industry and wasn't crazy about my intern class or the people in my group). I go to an ivy that is not Harvard or Wharton and is very common on the street.
My goal is to do PE after my two years in banking. This last week I began receiving calls from places that I got offers from and turned down at the beginning of the summer. It seems as though the following groups are willing to offer me a chance to switch there FT and I wanted the opinion of some of the older people on here in regards to the reputation of these groups and how they'd be viewed by various exit opps:
I also am trying to interview with BX restructuring (speaking with contact on Saturday), but didn't interview with them coming into summer so far less connections there.
I wanted to do FIG coming into the summer and Laz was my favorite firm (mainly picked GS for name) so I think my top choices right now are Laz and JPM (assuming BX doesn't pan out). Both firms have told me they have spots and are bringing me in within the next week to interview, so any insight differentiating between those two specifically would be very helpful. Also if anyone knows of people/had specific experiences with or in either group that would be great as well.
Thanks in advance.
