Analyst Spots

Rank: King Kong | 1,856

Anyone involved in the recruiting process know how many full-time analyst positions each bank is looking to fill in the US? Post what you know here. From my knowledge (these are approximate numbers heard from recruiters/analysts):

Rothschild: 13 full-time (offers given to 8 of 8 summer analysts)
Houlihan Lokey: 40 full-time

I know Citi and BofA are looking to hire more than the other BB's, but I don't know how many. JPM, GS, UBS appear to be mostly done with their analyst recruiting.

UBS is recruiting
GS is almost done recruiting from what I know ( from just talking to people)

Most top boutiques have filled their spots with summers but might have 1-5 spots open depending on the office.

anyone else?

Sep 20, 2009

JPM S&T - 0
JPM IBD - Very little. I would imagine <10

Sep 20, 2009

Barclays is also close to being down recruiting

MS is hiring though - at least 30 for IBD

Some smaller firms are hiring for their entire classes. William Blair & Co. is hiring 18 total

gs will be done very soon, and if you havent had at least your first round yet its probably too late for that
jpm is basically done
citi is doing a ton

BAS is also hiring a lot, I think

Sep 21, 2009

Sorry but what is BAS short for?

Sep 21, 2009

^I'm assuming that he's referring to Banc of America Securities

Not sure how many they're taking, but I think JEF is only giving interviews to people from targets.

Sep 21, 2009

jef is doing a reasonable amount of target recruiting though

Sep 21, 2009

JEF really has an inferiority complex eh?

Sep 21, 2009

jef has a weird set of targets. they seem to really like the top publics. one of my contacts there says their top targets, roughly in order, are wharton, umich, uva, texas.

this thread might be more IBD focused but do you guys have a sense of what the offer rates were in S&T for this year's interns at the undergrad and MBA/associate levels? I know last year it was around 15-30% for most banks... curious in case I'm back on the job market soon...

I was out of work for about six months last year when my group was cut and people I met at CFA events didn't want me to email them even...

Sep 22, 2009

My bank had about 50-60 something percent retention in FI S&T at the analyst level if I had to guess. There were less than 15 to begin with though.

Sep 22, 2009

spoke to couple guys from piper. they are hiring 15-20

Sep 22, 2009

I guess its pretty high, compared with retention last year, but most trading desks overfired... and that combined with the fact that they'd much prefer to recruit out of SA compared with FT, then I can't say I was surprised the number was pretty high. Since the class was so small, I'd say the people were pretty desired... most people who got offers got a few desks.

Does anyone know how many CS is bring on for the 2010 class total including SAs?

Sep 22, 2009

BoA: 55-60
Citi: 40-50
Moelis: 6

I am not pulling this numbers out of my ass, I actually talked with people who are in charge of recruiting.

Sep 22, 2009

I've heard second-hand that Citi is looking to hiring pretty aggressively for S&T at the undergrad level.

Sep 23, 2009

No clue what the exact number is, but I interned this past summer in IB and many of my friends who I thought were shoe-ins didn't receive an offer.

Sep 23, 2009

I don't know which division you mean 12345... but CS is not hiring FT IBD as far as I know. They are hiring in Equity S&T and some FI S&T from what I've heard.

Sep 23, 2009

How many 09s were deferred?

Sep 23, 2009

ive been told cs IS hiring ibd, though only in houston except a very small number of spots in ny. my source is the head of recruiting.

Sep 23, 2009

Fair enough, I know they aren't hiring at my target in IBD... so I think it must be pretty limited. I have no idea about # of deferrals.

Sep 28, 2009

Anyone know how many Citi slots are being filled by summer analysts?

Sep 28, 2009

Just done GS IBD 1st round interview. To my knowledge, they are still hiring people.

Sep 28, 2009

GHL is taking 6. They were still interviewing as of a week ago.

Sep 29, 2009

Especially for the Citi and BofA ML numbers?

Oct 8, 2009

I know Citi Chicago is only looking for around 4 people

Oct 1, 2009

CS doesn't hire FT usually in IBD - they fill it with interns and relationship hires.

GS IS hiring ... in fact they're doing recruiting this week at Harvard, Dartmouth and Yale I think

Oct 8, 2009

anyone know how many they're looking to hire in CS prime services FT?

Oct 12, 2009
