I've googled and haven't found anything that looks any more solid than this one. Of course, we're kinda afterthoughts on this site, but at least we're talking to the same kind of people.

you guys are not an afterthought -- we can always use different perspectives. consulting and iBanking are two jobs that have a lot of common...and often people switch from one to the other. we will make a better effort to drive more consultants to the site and appreciate your help with this as well. you will notice we have traders and PE professionals on the site as well. we all have something to offer and I think once the site grows a bit more and we have more professionals from every corner of finance, the knowledge shared will be tremendous. thanks for your support so far.

I agree with NYchimp

alot of the glamour goes to the bankers, and i can understand why given the grind and the large bonuses.
However, transactions are based on business strategies and business cases, who else to identify this opportunties other than consultants.

also we have strong management and project coordination skills. These 2 core skills could be lacking amongst junior ranks in IB.

So consultants should be hired as associates in IB

boz's rationale is also why those who do consulting early in their careers have the best shot at being corporate executives later in their careers. I'm learning so many things I would need to know to be a good CEO right now, it's almost silly. I can't say the same for my boys and girls on the street.
