PIMCO vs Blackstone
Currently a junior at a top target with offers from both for summer 2022. Finished an IB internship this summer from topand looking to join the buy-side straight out of undergrad. Both are investing roles working under research analysts and PMs.

Most interested in maximizing comp, b-school prospects, and prestige. Also personally like fixed-income more than equities. Would like to hear some thoughts before making a final decision.
Edit: Thank you to everyone who reached out and spoke with me. It was super helpful. I will be signing with PIMCO (they bumped base to match IB) and target bonus is ~50%. It seems they are pouring a lot of energy and resources to grow the alts team given the current low-yield environment. Excited!
