I've picked up an interest in Asset Management and private wealth management recently, and I wanted to know if it would be better to work in BB or boutique. Some people have told me that boutique would be a better experience in terms of work life, but after doing some research, I have come to the conclusion that the hours are the same and the pay is great at BB. I'm a freshman at a target school for business/finance, and it would be "easy" to recruit for IB or AM at top firms. My main concern is not being able to get a job at BB because it is highly competitive. From your experience, is there a significant difference between the two? Which one is a better work environment in the long run?
