Currently, what are the top groups in Los Angeles in the investment banking industry? What groups are dying out?
I've heard that many of thegroups in LA are not their own units and function as a regional arm to SF offices. Are there any exceptions? I've heard LA is one of these exceptions. Does anybody have insight on that particular group (pay / hours / deal flow / prestige / PE or exit opps)?
Mosti interested in the following LA investment banks:, , , Lazard, Goldman, , etc.
How does pay vary between these groups?
