GS: Toss up between GS TMT (NY/SF) and GS FIG (NY) for top. Followed by GS CRG/HC/Indsutrials (NY).

MS: MS M&A (NY) at top. Then toss up between MS Tech (Menlo) and MS M&T (NY).

Is GS TMT SF as good as GS TMT NY?

NY is the financial hub and there are a larger concentration of firms in NY, so GS TMT NY takes the cake; however, GS TMT SF is top on the west coast and also gets headhunted for the east coast since analysts are cross-staffed on deals and it is the TMT group (have seen recent exits from the analyst class to good buyside gigs in NY). You do see less SF TMT people choosing to pursue the east coast due to the crowd wanting to stay in tech finance (pe/ge/vc/hf) which is dominant on the west coast. The real only downside is flying out to the east coast (if you want to stay there) for interviews due to the group being quite busy and looking down on buyside recruiting. Just my two cents.

Curious who FIG groups at top banks are regarded so highly. Heard they don't gain as much modeling skill compared to M&A or other industry groups.

This might be the most pretentious thread I've ever seen on here. No wonder everyone is posting anonymously.

GS does have an M&A group. It sits in the financing group. They just don't do the execution, that happens in all the coverage groups.

How would your rate groups at these banks when it comes to their London offices?
