I go to a west coast tech-focused university and I'm starting to wonder if IB is the right call. The best talent in my peer group are going into rotational programs or fintech companies. It seems like the main upside is a faster rate in compensation growth in finance. I don't know too many people who are passionate about banking, most everyone I talk to honestly is looking for exit opportunities.
Saw this thread and it seems like even people with established finance careers wish they started in tech:
To those of you with a lot of drive, what is motivating you to go into IB vs. tech?
