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.

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.

GS. Obvious choice. End thread.

Fact: If you make partner at GS, short of several acts of sheet financial idiocy and perhaps even in spite of them, you will be a multi millionaire. See comment from GoldmanOrBust (who may be biased) above.

% of analysts at GS who make partner....? GS is still GS, but Centerview a great spot, especially if you're weighing quality of life concerns.

Centerview does have a 50K signing bonus. (No, that is not a typo)

Feb 6, 2014

oh ic

Feb 5, 2014

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.

What's the position at Centerview?

investment banking (focus on M&A and some restructuring). they've done some cool deals, but don't know if that makes up for the name

Feb 6, 2014

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

lol nice one blastoise

rofl...

Feb 6, 2014

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!
