Hi guys, "long" time lurker here.
I was wondering if anyone could drop some insight on top
I was given an opportunity to name my top 3 preferences for the SA internship.
I talked to several analysts last week, so I have some information.
PE and possibly HFs are my preferable "exits". Hours are not a factor. I think that Barclays culture is pretty nice in general.
Currently, I am looking at these three:
ii) Leveraged Finance
iii) PUI (Power, Utilities, Infrastructure)
-M&A's pitching to executing ratio is around 20:80 according to their analysts. You get to work with different sectors often, on lots of deals,technical work is good, and people who tend to stay with Barclays move to one of their favourite sector groups after several years. PE placement is very good as I think all analysts interviewed for MF positions this year (didn't get much info on this) and I know at least one was
- is very technical and interesting work with hours in summer and winter being really easy and killing hours during the season. I know that the work is pretty different than at other groups, but I am genuinely interested in this area and I liked the analysts. PE placement should be solid. Not sure if this would cross out HFs.
-PUI looks like a place because most of the analyst mentioned that they enjoyed working with the group or think highly of it. Read about it on WSO as well. Not sure about exit opps.
Other groups that I heard were good:
Thanks a lot guys!
