CS NY power vs. Citi NY power vs. Citi NY energy (oil and gas)

Just wondering peoples opinions on which is best:
- Credit Suisse - NY - Energy Group - focus on power, but some oil and gas stuff as well
- Citi - NY - Power Group
- Citi - NY - Energy Group (oil and gas, E&P focus, group partly based in Houston partly in NY, but I would be in NY)

Also, what are the other top groups for Power specifically? I know people say CS, Citi, BarCap, GS, MS, and JPM are all great for Energy, but that doesn't help with the breakdown between oil and gas and Power, which is a huge difference given that oil and gas is mostly based in Houston and power in NY.

Thanks,
Nick

So basically you are interested in Power & Utilities, and you need to choose between CS and Citi? Citi Energy is probably not in the loop then as you are more interested in P&U?
Between CS and Citi, specifically for P&U I would be indifferent between the two, though I would lean towards CS (though I am firmly of the view that once you get into a BB, you are in general trying to nit pick by ranking one group over the other - you can't really go wrong with either).

Before that, do you really want to do P&U for the next few years? Why?

I am interested in both. I think that ideally i would like to have a more broad exposure within the energy space, so being able to work on some E&P and some P&U would be great, which is what makes me lean towards CS (where all of energy works closely together) vs. Citi (where they are completely seperate). With that being said, I would prefer to be in a group that has a good reputation, and I wanted to get peoples thoughts on which of these opportunities was better, and on how these two stack up in comparison with the other groups on the street.

I think they are similar enough that you should go by culture and people. Not sure about nuances of who's good and bad though
