I know, I know. Everybody hates these comparison posts but I go to a southern school where there's not much available experience on IBD.I'm looking at summer associate offers and am interested in M&A. Both firms give summer offers followed by a matching process sometime in April.
I'd like to compare the firms along the following dimensions:
- strength/prestige of M&A practice (integrated groups and exclusive sales vs Citi M&A)
- future potential/growth of groups over next few years
- full-time comp (does barcap face british restrictions)
- PE exit ops
