I'll be an analyst at what they call a Middle Market bank (nyc) and I just wanted to hear some reasons why BB and MM differ. Obviously I know the bigger banks have more prestige and work on the biggest deals, but in terms of pay scale, what you'll learn and how hard you'll work, is there any difference?
I know I'll be working the same hours as a BB analyst based on what I was told at my interviews and will make roughly the same year-end pay. So what is the benefit of working for a BB? Is it just exit opps and resume boosting? and if its that, is it that big of a boost?
I just figure that getting into the industry is hard enough and which bank you work in really can't matter that much especially on the analyst level.
