SA team Choice (London): Industrials vs C&R

Hey everyone,

last month I accepted an offer for a top BB bank in London as a Summer Intern, I will start in June.

I will have to submit preferences for my team in April.

I'm interested in both C&R and Industrials, can someone clarify some points for me:

  • Reading the forum I understand that C&R is quite female-dominated, does this mean it will be more difficult to get converted to full time? Also, I don't really have an idea of the Industrials team culture and working hours so I would appreciate it if you could help with that as well.
  • In terms of exit opportunities, which one is better? I presume C&R
  • Knowing my interests (C&R and Industrials), is there any other team I should consider joining?

Lastly, can anyone who had experience with any of these two groups share their experience?

To be honest, a lot depends on which bank you are talking about. Might be helpful to shed some light upon that.

Industrials over C&R. Top teams are TMT and Industrials.

It's the name of their industrials one and it's amongst the strongest industrials ones on the street, with also great placement.

Does anyone know if there is any difference in hours? I know Healthcare is quite violent, but don't know for C&R or DI. Anyway, it looks like DI should be the right choice. Would be interesting to know how many interns they take in the team.
