Given market conditions and your preference for FT IBD, I think a reasonable argument could be made for Greenhill over several GS IBD groups, let alone Market Risk.

Take Greenhill here and don't even hesitate. Congrats on the offers.

I'd take Greenhill straight up over GS IBD just based on the people. Really cool dudes over there and still an excellent name and deal flow. Congrats.

Really? What if I gave you an offer from GS IBD and GHL right now? You would be lying if you said you'd still take GHL

It'd be a difficult decision, but it's not unfathomable to take an elite boutique over GS. For one thing, you're guaranteed to never work on a capital raise at GHL and you'll also get exposure to restructuring, if that interests you. Not to mention the fact that GHL is a much lower risk business (not as relevant for analysts, but definitely something associates ought to think about). This is all ignoring the fact that you might like the people at one firm more than the other, which is definitely a legitimate reason.

You fundamentally misunderstand banking. For those of us that understand that IPOs and Private Placements fucking suck, a pure M&A shop like Greenhill is a pretty awesome fucking option.

There was a similar discussion about choosing between JPMorgan Corporate banking and Houlihan lokey M&A a couple of weeks ago. Greenhill and M&A all the way!!!

That's not even similar...

Anyway, by that logic you guys should all be jumping at the opportunity to join GHL Except you're not, so what's wrong with the picture here...
