I currently have 3 great offers for summer internships:
2) Strats Associate on desk
3) Trading Analyst
I am inclined towardsQIS Strats. However I'm finding it very tough to decide. I have a strong passion for the markets and am very competitive, so I fit very well into and I know I would succeed at it at . However, I want to do highly quantitative work, which I am very capable of doing and have passion for it. Now I also know that at some desks traders do significant quant work too. The GS offer is in which is great because it creates great future opportunities with most top buy side firms. At the same time BoA offered me a very generous associate offer. MBS modeling can be interesting I heard, very new and different from typical models we learn in MFE's; but I don't know much about it and not sure if I'll like it.
So I'd like to know if anyone knows anything about the GS Strats team in QIS. What is it like working there, culture, environment, expectations etc? What are the career prospects in the long-term promotion-wise and salary too? It's hard to find much insightful info online so any help or advise will be very much appreciated.
