Is F100 really a lot better than non-IB/ST BB Finance Positions?
Most people at my school consider Financial Analyst and Rotational Programs at F100 companies (Verizon, 3M, P&G, Microsoft, J&J) to be great jobs out of undergrad. Great work-life balance, great brand name, interesting work, and strong start to a career.
However, on WSO, everyone talks about how much the Finance positions and rotational programs (non-IB/S&T) at BBs are all Middle/Back Office and how terrible they are. It seems to me that also provide great work-life balance and a great brand name.
So is the work in these BB positions much less interesting and look a lot worse on your resume than F100 companies? Why?
