Analyst or associate? Do you plan to be in banking long term or are exit opps a top concern? Any preference for coverage vs. product?

Associate and planning to be in banking for the long term. Coverage most likely.

Seems like it would be highly dependent on group and office.

Bumping out of interest, not a lot interest/info in lower MM around here.

I've interviewed with a couple of them between internships, FT, and lateraling. From what I can tell (these are largely just feelings from talking with people)...

Stephens has their stuff together. solid teams in Little rock and ATL (transport/logistics/industrials?) Seems like a cool tight knit firm. Probably the best in terms of pure advisory assuming a generalist role. It's private too, which has benefits.

STRH has some strong teams, I only know tech but fairly strong in data centers and towers. Wells Fargo lite is the feeling I got in terms of both capabilities and deal size. Nothing to sneeze at.

Stifel seems like a bit of a mess. More a network of boutiques trying to build out an integrated platform and a bit of a balance sheet. They seem to occupy the bottom of the middle market.

Never met anyone at opco.

what Stifel groups are in Baltimore? sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a relative novice I don't know how to find what groups are at what offices
