Lateral from Baml to Laz/GS/MS/BX
Currently a 1st year analyst and absolutely hate my group. I dislike the industry I am in and the people in the group are so self-centered, introverted, and uninteresting. None of the analysts talk and the morale is pretty low. The deal flow is solid but I still would like to be in either a different industry coverage group or even M&A.
I really don't give two shits about PE/. I just want to be able to wake up and go to work in the morning without contemplating quitting. I enjoy the work, but hate the industry/people. I also would consider an associate promotion if given one.
Does anyone know if lateral spots even exist at the banks I mentioned? I've hearquit all the time and some of the and have lateral openings or people also quit there too. What would the process look like anyway? Would I have to reach out to those banks or are these filled by word-of-mouth? What if my bank finds out?
Anyone who has successfully lateraled please chime in.
