Tbh - yes, because if you are comparing buyside to sellside than you want to be on the buyside. You're going to get into your two years and hate life if you go on the sellside.

Now could you get better exits opps by going to any of the names above yes. Granted some here would heckle you for grouping GHL/GUGG/JEF as one. GHL doesn't really do cap markets

Bro don't do this. Any of the firms you listed will have far better brand name recognition and will allow you to exit to a semi decent Pe firm (MM/UMM) after your analyst stint. Starting out at a no name buy side firm is a death sentence. Learning might be good, however you sacrifice the opportunity to make a career pivot and the brand name of an established bank on your resume.

Disagree entirely, depends on your risk tolerance. LMM shop but consistent very high returns. Sure it's not as clear of a path and you don't get the "banking pedigree" on your resume but you have a seat which potentially provides some line of sight into a more senior level PE role (know some of these programs progress people into VP roles without MBA). Probably an unpopular opinion on here as everyone is obsessed with 2 years of banking 3 years as an associate then getting pushed out and being forced into an MBA (wasting 2 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars). Just my two cents but your line of sight to carry is much clearer if you take somewhat of a gamble early on. Heads up it's not that hard to go back into banking from PE may as well take the chance if you like the culture and feel it's a good learning experience and have a chance to move up.
