BX M&A > MS M&A > EVR

Apr 6, 2014

Jeez... Do you even have any of these offers?

If you have Blackstone take it.

BX beats the other two, then maybe depending on the location/group MS before Evercore but might be different in the US.
Sidenote: at least in Europe BX has pretty much the worst hours from everything I know.

MS M&A > BX M&A >>> EVR

A lot of kids on this board are obsessed with boutiques. But you shouldn't underestimate the power of the MS brand name. If you're guaranteed MS M&A (which rarely happens) then it's clearly the best choice. If you're not guaranteed MS M&A, Go with BX M&A for PE/HF exit opps and MS for everything else. Throw EVR out of the discussion.

The only reason the "MS brand name" would be important is with buy-side recruiting... which you just said would be better at BX. So, what you just said made no sense...

Blackstone is the obvious choice to me.

Bad advice.

God damn it, don't you just hate when you +1 someone when you mean to -1 them?

On a more serious note, please shut up.

I'd take BX. Work less hours, slightly better/same exits as MS M&A

If you've been a lurker for 2-3 years, you should the answers to your questions....

Plus I think the BX brand name is stronger than MS both within and outside of finance (unless you are looking to go into a completely different field after, like agriculture)

Absolutely 0 reason to consider anything over BX M&A at the boutique level unless its BX R&R

BX... cause it is about preftige
