Help me choose a shop

Hi guys,

I'm waiting to hear back from two different MM IBs that are leaders in Spain. I'm sure that you will know which they are. One comes from Japan, but has a good presence in the EU, with a specialized team in London and a general team in Iberia. The other shop has an only presence in Spain but has a very good deal flow and a partnership with an EB from the US. 

Given that both banks are actually in the top league tables in Iberia, I actually feel that they are more or less the same, and the comp that Glassdoor shows are biased as fuck.  So, what should I do? 

Regarding culture, I think both have really nice teams, so I don't think that choosing one or the other, would change that much. 

Thanks in advance
