Hi, I'm very curious about the difference between being a sell-side or a buy-side equity analyst. Of course, one main difference is that you don't talk to clients when you are a buy.side analyst and that your reports aren't published, as they are for internal use only. but what else? do pay (of course comparing apples with apples, so top bb with top asset manager e.g.) and hours differ significantly? hierarchy different? culture?
thanks a lot for any insights!
