Need To Choose Between Offers

Hey ya'll I'm currently sitting on two offers (think DB/UBS/RBC) and was wondering if anyone could shed light on exit opportunities, if any from each shop and potentially from specific groups.

I think it's safe to say to avoid DB right now regardless of context, especially if you have another offer.

JUST DO IT. Don't let your memes be dreams.

Really depends on what group.

I heard healthcare and industrials at UBS is quite good, especially if you work in their London or Zurich office, industrials is pulling in loads of cash. Not too familiar with RBC but I'm pretty sure if you stick with M&A you'll be just fine.

This is a tough one. I'd say stay away from DB no matter what, unless the only bonus you want is severance. As for UBS vs RBC. I see UBS as a stronger brand right now, however it is also declining. RBC has a less strong brand name, but is a growing platform. If you can get into a group like industrials or M&A you'd do fine. Culture is the best there to. If this is an SA offer for 2020, and you start in 2021, and begin PE recruiting in 2022, i think in 3 years RBC may be in a better position than UBS.
