How do these firms compare overall? I'm in the process for a lateral hire with all three of them in NYC. Thanks in advance.

What group(s)?

This is for the tech groups at the Associate level.

Cowen - IT and Information Services - software, fintech, etc. They are building up the group which is currently ~10 people.
Nomura - TMT. They are also building up the TMT group with recent hires in fintech and software.
Jefferies - Tech - Phil Berkowitz team who worked with Frank Quattrone. Definitely the most prestigious of the 3 but I imagine brutal lifestyle.
