I would go with Moelis, but that's just what I think...

You're going in as an associate and will be in banking for a while (hopefully). The potential gains from going to an up and coming shop are great. You don't have to worry about the foundational PE exits that UBS/CS have/had.

I see LA a lot on this thread now...what's the infatuation with LA? Is it the beautiful weather? The beautiful girls? The movie stars? The nice cars? The nice houses? The amazing outdoor restaurants? The Grove and the Beverly Center? The beaches? The clubs? The Lakers?

If it's all of the above, I agree...lol.

Go to Moelis, as an associate at Moelis you would get to use your brain a lot more. Also there is a lot of potential for you to move up and on every level at Moelis, you'll be working a level higher than your actual title. Moelis will definitely have the same exit opps as UBS LA- although LBOs are not hot anymore, restructuring for companies owned by financial sponsors are. In that regard Moelis still does business with them. As an associate your looking to build a career and I believe you will enjoy your time the most at Moelis as boutiques are the story of the next decade.
