I work in Corporate Banking at a very large bank, and have never seen them in a single deal - even at the lowest commitment tier

Does it matter? A jobs a job, if you have long term goals in the industry this might be a good starting point if you have nothing else.

Santander is the biggest player in the field. JPM dealflow is real bad - small fish in a big pond

You bumped a 15 month old thread to post that cringe worthy shite?

Specific group or in general?

In general.

I know some general info: they have a decent-sized focus on the corporate sector, and specific industries (TMT, financial sponsors, industrials, and energy) - of course, this means dealing w/ loans and not necessarily their IB activities. Personally, I've seen them on the bottom of a couple of our deals, if any at all.

However, I would shy away for now due to the recent news (departure of major executive), and losses. And if you follow the news, you'll know that it's not necessarily a good time to be in Spain/work for a Spanish bank :)

Just my two cents.

Thanks!

Of course :) Any experience helps, corp fin as well - Santander is a huge bank don't get me wrong, but just not as big as it is in Europe.
