Heard second-hand that PJT M&A can be pretty fratty/chill, as well as certain groups at BarCap (TMT comes to mind). Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Note that these were said as positive factors, not negative

Have often heard this comment about certain groups at CS. Hard to say that an entire bank is the "frattiest" considering the frequent cultural differences between groups.

Hard disagree...
met the whole BarCap team during recruiting...did not get that impression at all; just super chill, easy to chat with fellas (and a couple nice ladies).
While I admit the group is WASPy, one of their incoming summers is Indian American.

In my experience being in a fraternity has helped minimally in my career as far as networking. Less of an old boys club than you think. Can barely name any who even went into IB but plenty who studied finance. And I went to a semi-target

Moelis if you're an associate. The analysts get crushed, and so do the associates, but the stories I've heard are fucking nuts - just off the wall nights out, great bullpen, Vegas trips and a fratty atmosphere. Even during recruiting, they were one of the only firms to bring a full bar to their firmwide, and they held an invite only at the R&T.

Honestly a bit jealous - headed to another EB and very happy, but the Moke bros can't be beat.

Im not sure any bank is fratty anymore. In my first year as an analyst MDs used to ask on monday mornings who got laid the weekend prior and you shared your war stories in detail. All that has ended. The kids coming in from frats today don't really go that hard. Playing an hour of beer pong in the office on a friday before leaving doesn't make you fratty lmao

FT Partners is pretty fartty. I love it though. Always great to hang out with the bros and girls at work and afterwards at the parks and clubs (including London, SF and NY).

Most analysts go as a group to all of the events in the town that would be exciting. Office also gets pretty crazy at times with everyone from the analyst to the Ds playing loud music at times.

Will update my computer soon and leave Incognito so I will disappear forever. How did I achieve Neanderthal by trolling? Some people are after me so need to close account for safety.

Based on all of the other posts, I'm assuming I will get Morgan Stanley, right?

No comment on that. Depends on who you are around. My gym clothes can get pretty stinky and stink up my office so some people might think I have a problem.

Good attention to detail, friend.

Why are there only frat boys in these banks though?
