Choice between two offers
I was lucky enough to get two offers for a summer analyst position:
1) HSBC Global Banking Advisory, London
2) Bank of America Advisory, Hong Kong
Having trouble deciding between the two and could use some advice.
As far as I'm concerned, the pros of HSBC are that one of the Associates told me they will be giving most of their (12) advisory interns full time offers this year considering the standard of applicants. Also, unlike the BofA offer I got the internship through the interview process. Cons, its HSBC Advisory, so lower dealflow, less focus on investment banking company-wide (they recently scrapped their healthcare team for example), also the people there didn't seem to enjoy their work, or working at HSBC.
I'd be interested if anyone knows what BofA in Hong Kong is like. Cons first, I got the internship through a family friend without an interview, so as far as getting a job at the end goes I don't really know. I've spent some time studying Mandarin (far from fluent though). Basically, it has a better reputation, and more focus on Advisory, also Hong Kong is amazing and it'd look great on a CV.
What do you guys think?
