If generalist, then Goldman.

The only way I choose Centerview is if it is a group specific offer that I am interested in or one of their tops. That's just my opinion though.

"They are all former investment bankers that were laid off in the economic collapse that Nancy Pelosi caused. They have no marketable skills, but by God they work hard."

99% sure Centerview is generalist.

Yeah, the Centerview offer is generalist. Group selection at Goldman will occur in the next month, from what he's been told. Apparently his likely placements will be one of the following four: TMT/FIG/NRG/HC

If his concern is exit opps go Goldman. Centerview is looking to mold career bankers.

MM IB -> TMT Corporate Development -> New Ventures

Yes, I'm sure. I have a family-friend who works there. Also, Centerview, if I am not mistaken, is the highest paying firm.

I'd rather have 50K signing bonus than Saturday's off. Having Saturdays off is stupid, because you're fucked Sunday. I don't know about you, but I want to watch NFL games on Sunday, lol.

Goldman Risk Management vs. Centerview (Originally Posted: 10/27/2011)

which is the better offer? goldman is more prestigious but the position doesn't have as much relevance to finance, but centerview is a smaller name and doesn't have as much respect. long term goal is Goldman Sachs banking; which will help more for full time?

I mean...it completely depends on what you want to do. centerview is a highly respected name in the industry, cranking out some crazy deals right now. and once you're in risk, you'll pretty much be staying in risk going forward, back/mid to front office is a pretty tough transition to make (i think i've only ever heard of 1 person to do it)
no point in picking GS for the name, if you're serious about banking, it's about the deals

This is a joke, right? Centerview is one of the most elite banks to work for (arguably better than GS IBD in many ways). They have a tiny analyst class and great deal flow (have you seen the transactions on their website? damn). Plus its boutique, so all m&a and highest comp on the street. Centerview is leagues above GS risk mgt.

Hopefully, this is a troll post otherwise you really needa learn something about the industry. good luck!
