Really?? As an incoming FT analyst, I have heard nothing in regards to change of date. Giving you benefit of doubts here, but plz clarify...

Mar 24, 2020 - 12:00pm

How do you know that? Did you get an email or hear directly from HR?

Their email didn't seem as hopeful as some of the others posted here. No mention of alternative accommodations but very well may just be reading too far into it.

How is Mizuho and Nomura MM shops? I thought they were well below the traditional middle market form such as Wells

Relax? I literally just asked an objective question about the bank. Looks like we found the Mizuho analyst on this thread

Obviously not IB but im hearing LEK canceled summer internships and will give full-time offers to their entire intern class. Can anyone confirm?

Mar 25, 2020 - 2:54pm

Same. How exactly would remote internships work for divisions or teams that deal with highly sensitive information?


  • Intern in 
Mar 25, 2020 - 2:59pm

I disagree, the timeline is too far off as of now to make any prediction. So much is changing every week. SA starts around early June I wouldn't be surprised to see offices resume as normal with some more distancing rules perhaps.

Mar 25, 2020 - 3:08pm

So it'd be a good idea to have hundreds of interns from across the globe in places with different levels of exposure congregate during training as well as the actual internship?

Credit Susie SF and Evercore dropped their Canadian interns (the ones going to school in Canada, no idea about Americans at school)

Is that due to border/visa issues?

  • Analyst 1 in IB - Gen
Mar 25, 2020 - 7:55pm

The border is shut down my man. Feel sorry for any Canadians at US banks who will probably get reamed by this - mostly Ivey, Queens, McGill kids

Mar 25, 2020 - 9:00pm

I know this is not banking but still relevant. Google interns are being moved to a virtual internship.

A friend is doing something along the lines of computer engineering in Silicon Valley.

Can confirm Lazard sent out an email that there are no changes as of now, but they are looking at contingency plans and will send an update on April 15th. Not sure what the update will be.

Friend at Laz said her team has been onboarding FT analysts remotely. Not sure what approach Laz will take toward interns in this scenario but I would say remote internship is not out of realm of possibility.

mm bank emailed us today to hold off on scheduling our flights to HQ for first week of training

Received an email from BNP Paribas last week - looks like there are no changes to their 2020 SA program as of now, but wondering if anyone has heard anything else.

  • Incoming Analyst in S&T - FI

What do u mean

Well it's not really "laying someone off" if you never onboard them in the first place. So if HR goes ahead and cancels internships/FT, I don't know if that is considered a loophole to the company statement(s) above.

BAML sent out an email to incoming 2020 Class. No lay offs. We will be paid on designated start regardless of work or not/communicated start date pre-virus. I think training will be virtual which is why they will pay us on our start dates.

  • Prospect in S&T - Equities

I heard from a source high up inside BAML that internships across all divisions are highly being considered to be canceled. I can't say for sure as there isn't a notice that was given out yet, but hopefully that doesn't happen.

  • Prospect in PropTrad

Can you expand on this more. Was the source someone in HR? also did they say about other opportunities BAML may offer if this was to occur. Also, I think that if one bank does virtually they all will because it would look very poorly on that specific bank.

Apr 1, 2020 - 7:38pm

This was just fake news. They sent this out today, directly from Bank of America: "We would like to reinforce your job is secure, and you will be paid beginning on your currently scheduled start date (June, 2020)."

  • Summer Associate in IB - Cov
Apr 1, 2020 - 9:04pm

Great to hear! Just to clarify, I am hearing this was sent to FT hires, but the original start date was June 2020 (which sounds like SA program). Does this mean the communication went out to both FT and SA 2020 hires? Thanks!

Attended a recruitment webinar for Evercore yesterday and HR lady mentioned that they are "fully ready and preparing" for their SA program to be virtual this summer.

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Mar 29, 2020 - 12:20am

Just to clarify, they aren't 100% for sure on it yet, but seems like they're definitely prepping for it if things continue on as they currently are. Also, not sure this adds any more legitimacy to it, but it was said at the virtual women's symposium yesterday, so if anyone else who was there wants to pitch in on what was said, go for it.

Mar 29, 2020 - 3:03am

Interning at a MF in their credit investing arm, was told by HR last week that no changes are planned and that worst case I'll be started virtually.

I fear this is a situation where if one bank pulls, others will follow. Hopefully we dont have to get to that point.

Any updates have heard a lot of people saying that a virtual internship is most likely a go for the summer heard from HR? Also, NYU housing is on for the summer with possible cancelation later,

Received an update on IB division, BB, NYC. Start date may be delayed, but program will happen with pay starting from original start date.

honestly, I think they will. Really impressive of BAML to be the first though. Says a lot about the firm

  • Prospect in Other
Apr 1, 2020 - 6:08pm

since BAML sent that email, I think that BBs will follow and will be safe. what about MM IB? do you guys think MM will follow BBs in this too, or do you think MM responses could be different?
