Made it to a Bulge Bracket Bank

Great news. I finally landed a spot in DCM for the leveraged finance team of a very prestigious BB on the street. I literally started from the bottom, working my way up, and have been working at a mid-size to small boutique firm for the past year and a half.

My old firm was super short on staff, so I am already use to working 100+ hour work weeks, working multiple assignments with tight deadlines.

My question is what should I expect job/work wise going from a smaller shop to a top tier BB? What are some of the big differences that I should prepare myself for? I want to prepare as much as possible so I can hit the ground running.

A little back track. I was working at a regional office compared to being on the floor at the HQ. My new job is at the HQ in NYC, which I automatically know will be different.

P.S. I am sorry if this has been discussed before, but I am new to WSO and wanted to post as I am both extremely excited as well as anxious at the same time.

Thanks for all the help.
