Stifel is a really good bank, probably the best one on the list. Cantor Fitzgerald cancelled all SA 2020 internships without giving auto return offers. Macquarie and BMO are probably your best options after Stifel.

You think there are enough on the list or should we add some more? As the above poster said, it depends on what group and location, but Stifel, BMO and Macquarie are likely your best bets.

I think you should add some more banks so that we can understand your situation better.

Surprised no one is giving any credit to BNP Paribas. In the US, I think BNP in many verticals of finance is the best French bank. BNP has a good MM presence, and you get around 30 vacation days as an analyst, plus good espresso machines on every floor. I've seen BNP analysts move to all types of BB and PE funds, so if you hate your group I don't see why you wouldn't be able to lateral.

Stifel, depending on the group also has a strong reputation and I see people move to PE from there quite often. 

BMO I hear is super toxic, especially in healthcare and metals and mining. AVOID.

Cantor fitz and mizuho - def no.
