Regional MM to BB/EB ?
I'm looking for advice on whether to lateral in August or Sept? Currently working in Chicago at a BB in Asset Based Lending started as an analyst in Janaury and I'm thinking about going into IB in Atlanta/Chicago/Houston/Charlotte. I don't want to go to New York given the COL. However, in most of the cities that I want to work in there's not a strong BB/EB presence. Ideally, I want to work 3 years at a bank and get promoted to an associate. And, maybe consider B-school after 1 -2 years of associate. Based on my situation, should I try to lateral over the summer or should I do the 1 year first and possibly wait till next summer? How does working at a SunTrust in Atl or Baird in Chicago situation going to affect me long term, if I want to become an associate at a BB/EB?
