You'll gain excellent modelling skills, good for infra fund (obviously). Other than that your questions are dependent on bank.

how do gs, ms and jpm fare in the infrastructure space?

May 7, 2013

does anyone know how GS/MS/JPM are in the Infrastructure/Power/Utilities space? and how strong exit opps are?

Jun 19, 2013

anyone have league tables for P&U? Also, as asked above, how strong are the exit opps?

Can speak of European dealflow and league tables. Citi is on top of the league tables with JPM and GS. You gain deep modelling skills and many times transactions are asset based (wind farms, transmission lines, specific plants)

Heavy hours, loads of regulation, different remuneration schemes for each country and for each technology (wind, solar, hydro...) . Resuming you get in depth exposure to modelling but expect heavy hours in doing so.

Exit Opps: There a megafunds who invest solely in utilities/renewables/infra.

Read my response and figure out where Lehman IB went.

Jun 19, 2013

Yeah, I saw that. Looks like most went to Barclays from what I see.

Any insights?

Infrastructure funds (assuming obama can get his shit together, it'll heat up considerably), power/energy focused pe shops. Some larger buyout firms also have sub-groups that cover these things so it's completely plausible to do that as well. I've also seen a few guys (analysts and associates) roll over to HFs but I think PE is a bit more likely.

1) Lehman

big drop

2) UBS, CS, GS

drop

5) MS...most banks have bankers based out of NYC and Houston

Where did Lehman's IB group go to?

Jun 19, 2013

Barclays, and they have a very strong P/U team.

Jun 19, 2013

I know or have met some guys from JPM, seem very collegial, laid back.

I'll be able to tell you a lot more about the others one month from today.

CS and UBS (now Citi)= Sweatshops. Barclays, BAML, Tudor= Good culture. JP Morgan pretty good although a few more tools than the other places.

Where do you get that they are sweatshops?

Jun 19, 2013

Shaniqua, why do you say Barcap, BAML, and Tudor have good cultures? Can you pass along anything specific about them?

Jun 19, 2013

Great culture at JPM

Can second, talked to a few people from JPM Houston and liked them a lot.

wtf does this mean when people say great culture? thats so vague - yeah great maybe based on your personality but i dont know shit about you. please elaborate for future reference. that is all.

People tend to think life is a race with other people. They don't realize that every moment they spend sprinting towards the finish line is a moment they lose permanently, and a moment closer to their death.

I know, right!?! That's my freaking biggest pet peeve on WSO. If you're going to comment, go ahead and support your assertion at least a little. Just sayin'.

Ugh... all these places are sweatshops. it's called investment banking for a reason.

Jun 19, 2013

these posts are ridiculous

Jun 19, 2013

I'm going to try and revive this to get some real information. I would enjoy hearing about hrs, scoial aspects, relationship between analysts/associates, and anything someone thinks is useful.

On a side note, does any know about some of the smaller shops (TudorPickering, Simmons, etc...)

Please and thank you.

Sent you a PM.
