1) Would you ever choose
2) I really didn't want operations, but operations had career drop at my school while ibd/securities didn't. The HR girl told me to just apply on their website for other divisions. Does applying on their website = same chances as career drop? Or did I just completely waste my time and can only get operations at GS because of career drop?
I probably wouldn't take gs operations over ibd offers at other banks, but wanted to know how bad of an idea is it?
