Been searching around the forums, cant find much discussion around this topic.
I'm trying to determine if there is a stigma attached to working as an Analyst at a boutique bank for 1 year and 6 months rather than a round two years. I'd be dropping out in June, taking a month or so off, and then starting with an "interesting" position (think a start-up incubator) for a year or two both to relax a bit, and hopefully look better for top 25 MBA's.
Any thoughts on this? Before the "stick it out for 2 years bro", it makes sense for me to drop. Small boutique, waning deal flow, no room for expanded responsibility etc. Basically I'm wondering if it will look super negative not to have finished out the two years.
I'm going to try and negotiate a stub bonus...wonder how that's going to go.
