I want to know how prestigious BlackRock PAG is. I am deciding between some offers between this and a prop trading shop called trillium.
I'm leaning towards BlackRock right now because i hear it is very analytical and has great exit ops into hedge funds or investment banking because of the BlackRock name.
Some people though have been telling me that this is a back office job and I won't be analyzing stocks, is this true or are they just jealous? Some of my classmates who told me this probably didn't get interviews so just letting you know.
also is it possible to get into investment banking from BlackRock and if so does it base more on gpa and major or your current job? i ask this because my current stats are not too impressive i have a 3.2 from a nontarget state school (top 100 us news ranking).
also please let me know what PAG does? and if prestige is better than prop trading.
