I'm struggling deciding between a BlackRock PAG (Portfolio Analytics Group) internship and a BMO Capital Markets IB generalist position for the summer.
Long-term (i.e. for full-time recruiting) I plan on doing banking. However, though BlackRock is Asset Management, it definitely has a better name and pays much better (i.e. around $8k-10k more for the summer). BMO is pretty good middle market but doesn't have the best rep. Considering that I want to do banking (M&A) post-grad, what would be the best option. Would it be pretty difficult to secure a banking job after doing an asset management internship?
Any advice at all would be appreciated, thanks.
