They do basically no advisory so no M&A, straight capital raises and follow on offerings. Interviews will be standard and similar to other IB interviews, just know the BIWS guides relatively well and you should be fine. It's unfortunate, because you would think Sage Kelly would turn the tables around, but he hasn't yet..

Got it thanks. One question if my eventual goal for FT is either a small HF or BB IB would this be a good point to lateral somewhere else (obv I know it'll be hard)? My other offer rn is a PE fund not a mega fund but it's decent

I'm biased because I denied IB offers to go buy-side, but if you want to do IB full-time then going IB as a SA is probs your best bet to go IB FT. If the PE fund has had some solid returns and it fits in your parameters (ex. $1B+ AUM, decent track record for sending associates to M7, experienced partners, etc.) and if they give out FT offers it wouldn't be a bad bet to go PE->HF. However IB will probably give you the most flexibility for exit opps if you're unsure on what you want to do after your analyst stint. To put it short, if it's a reputable PE firm and they give out FT offers and you want to skip the whole IB route then I'd go with that, but if you want to go BB IB and want more optionality id go with IB SA and re-recruit over the summer to go BB IB
