Long-term Importance of Bullpen?
For those of you who have been in the financial services world for 6+ years and started out in investment banking, I was wondering how important your analyst "bullpen" has been in terms of having a network to rely upon.
The reason I ask is that I am considering PE Analyst roles, and I know this comes with a lot smaller of an analyst class.
Would appreciate perspective from both boutique and bulge bankers. How important is the network you gain from the bullpen? How would you way this against out-of-college roles that don't provide that initial network?
