Google - Finance Division
Friend of mine just got an offer from Google (NYC office) in its FP&A division. He's been doing this type of work for about 2 years now in Financial services companies (Middle Office). I know that this position in any BB or even MM firm would be considered back-office and it's very hard to get into FO, but hey, this is Google.
What do you all think about it? Exit ops to top B-School? Would he be able to jump into IB or Trading after B-School with this experience?
FWIW, I have Wharton's 2009 resume book and one of their students came from Google's Finance division (although she was in IB prior to that, which my friend didn't do).
