Piper Jaffray vs Apple

I understand that Pipar Jeffray's is a MM bank, whereas apple is a large tech company. I have offers from both of them: a summer analyst position at PJC and an offer to the finance development program at Apple.

I was wondering if anyone could speak to the exit ops at each of these companies, granted they are very different. Thanks in advance.

1) Piper Jaffray not Pipar Jeffray

2) It really depends on what you want to pursue in the future. If you see your future in F500 then go for Apple but if you want to choose banking then go with Piper Jaffray. It's all based on your aspirations in the future and where you see yourself. If money is the only incentive I'm positive IB will pay more, at least initially. Both are great opportunities.

I would go Piper either way. Can easily jump to a corporate role after banking, much harder to go the other way.

I mean if you're set on staying in a corporate role then go Apple, otherwise banking has more optionality.

I second this, plus IBD positions are more niche. Odds are if you got a PJC offer, you spent hundreds of hours to get to that point, or you're a super genius and learned everything necessary in one weekend. Guessing as you fall into the former category, I would recommend you pursue IBD. I am inclined to believe it aligns more with your "passion" but could be wrong. It would help the WSO if you explained why you applied to both positions as they are so inherently different, and then we could offer better feedback.
