So, through the most grueling 6 weeks of my life I was able to land two full time possibilities come graduation (with a third option potentially in the mix).
I'm really having trouble weighing the pros and cons of each, and would appreciate some feedback. I'm beyond stoked on both offers, and would gladly take both, but would appreciate some non-biased opinions outside of the recruitment cycle.
As a little context - The PJ spot is a regional office (think NY, SF) as a generalist to be put on either Tech or Consumer/Retail. The Imperial position is for their HQ in LA, and is generalist in nature (so ultimately working on m&a, financings, and restructuring for a variety of industry verticals). Both offices pay the same base salary of $70k with a $10k sign on bonus, but I haven't been able to talk to any of the analysts about bonus sizes.
In terms of location, I don't mind too much either way, as long as the work I'm doing is interesting and I will have the possibility at some point if I so choose, to pursue an MBA, lateral to a BB, or move into PE/VC. I do have a slight industry preference to Tech, but it's nothing that would really sway my ultimate opinion unless it was something like Qatalyst!
Anyways, I would reeeeallyyy appreciate any insight on the matter. Reputation, exit opps, bonus sizes, etc. And if you don't feel comfortable posting a reply, please shoot me a PM. I honestly am at a standstill here, and could really use the help.
