Do most BB analysts leave after their 2nd year or 3rd year?
Curious as to if most BB analysts leave after their 2nd or 3rd year for PE. Is it better to leave after your 2nd or 3rd, does it matter? Are most full-time analyst programs 2 or 3 years?
I seem to see mixed things on this, I have seen many analysts stay 3 years then leave, or stay 2 years an leave. It seems like 2 years it the most common, but I am curious. Do most BB's just assume that analysts are going to leave after 2 years or do analysts staying usually always get promoted if they are good?
Is it better to leave after 2 years to get the best chance at PE placement - as in do PE firms preference 2nd year exiters from IB versus 3rd years or does it not matter?
