Hey guys, what's the biggest difference in working at a sell-side ER (working at global investment banks) vs. buy-side ER (research associate at large AM or MF) in terms of the work you do everyday? From my understanding, the biggest difference is that the sell-side ER has a lot more marketing aspect to it (going on marketing trips, organizing events, connection to management, etc). If you're an ER associate on the buy-side, would you also be covering a list of names and periodically writing out reports on your coverage? Would you care about the earnings season and quarterly results if you're on the buy-side ER?
