Face it, BAML SUCKS.

KKR will never hire you if you work here. Neither will TPG, BX, Carlyle, or Silver Lake. Warburg Pincus and H&F won't consider you. In fact, no PE shop or HF will think about hiring you.

lmao at all these clowns (ibhopeful532 and firstyearbanker) trying to pimp up the place because they're insecure. newsflash, BAML will NEVER EVER be considered a top prestigious bank. i know people who've taken Jefferies and PJC over BAML. At BAML, your exit opps are HS janitorial services and security guard at the local mall.

I hate baml too and that 1styearbanker guy but you should edit out " i know people who've taken jefferies and PJC over BAML" and put in something else for more credibility.

Jan 21, 2010

fine, i know people who have taken McDonalds and a corporate strategy gig at a prison over BAML

There's Goldman and then there's everything else.

I'm sorry that you got rejected by BAML IBD and had to settle for ops at GS.

HOW DARE YOU DENIGRATE BANK OF AMERIA!!! We all know BoA is the bestest bank out there, legendary Chiang will be big ballin' there come summer 2010 so shut ur mouth. I am not ashamed to stand on top of a skyscraper and proclaim my allegiance to the bank, of the united states of america.

though I have to admit BAML kids weren't good enough for Piper Jaffray. :(

=========================================
We are excited to formally extend to you an offer to join Bank of Ameria

I'd rather do ops at GS than IBD at BAML.

You're the only one.

why is BAML considered bad? I always thought BAML was a bulge bracket no?

Trojan: BoA was never, but Merrill Lynch and its legacy was always considered the best on the street, alongside GS and MS. Pick up any history book on finance and you'll see.

Op: Oooh you sure got me angry! Grrrrrr. I will surely continue being mad when I get back from my workout. I sure hope this doesn't ruin my weekend! Grrrrrr
