Just want to say if you're doing IB at Soc Gen, the only group with solid deal flow and exit opps is Lev Finance. They were doing really well in the MM space. For everything else, they're not doing that great.. However, you're still getting paid generously, working decent hours, and have 30 vacation days as an analyst.

Does anyone know if SocGen has West Coast presence? It seems like they have a pretty decent sized shop in New York.

After submission, confirmation email says if you don't hear back in 3 weeks, to assume you've been dinged? does this apply to us?

reached out to an analyst and seems like HR is just really really slow with the application reviews...hopefully, they reach out by the end of this month.

Did your app move from "under consideration" to "processing" or did you get a second email a couple of days ago about them reviewing your application?

Saw in an older forum post (~2013) that they took sophs. Decided to throw my hat in the ring not knowing if that still holds true (ended up getting to screening round so maybe?)

I got an invite for a 1st round phone interview today. I go to a southern target (Duke/Vandy/UVA) and did not network that much with the firm. Had to decline the invite because I've already accepted another SA offer

know Soc Gen well from lev fin / loan capital markets side, and the types of deals they left lead n right lead, etc.

Happy to provide more insight offline to ppl if things get serious.

quickly - here's a recent deal they're right lead on - 1-800 contacts LBO. article is from Oct 16 

1-800 Contacts revises tranching on LBO financing, slashes 2L margin to L+675; recommitments due at 2 p.m. ET

  • A Morgan Stanley- and KKR Capital Markets-led arranger group finalized terms of the first- and second-lien buyout financing for 1-800 Contacts, cutting pricing on the second-lien term loan, firming pricing on the first-lien tranche at the tight end of guidance and revising tranching to upsize the first-lien tranche by $50 million, sources said. The upsize to the first-lien reduces the second-lien tranche by $25 million, the equity check by $15 million, with the remaining $10 million to be placed as cash on the balance sheet, sources said.
  • Recommitments are due at 2 p.m. ET, with allocations expected thereafter.
  • The second-lien was flexed down to L+675, with a 0.75% floor and a 99.5 OID, versus original guidance of L+750-775, with a 0.75% floor and a 99 OID.
  • Pricing on the first-lien was finalized at L+375, with a 0.75% floor and a 99.5 OID, which represents the tight end with respect to both the margin and OID. The former launched at L+375-400 and the latter at 99–99.5. Also, the arrangers added a 25 bps step-down at 5x net first-lien leverage. 
  • Morgan Stanley is left lead on the first-lien and KKR is left lead on the second-lien tranche. They are joined by Jefferies, UBS, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Societe Generale, Mizuho, MUFG and Credit Agricole CIB as bookrunners. Morgan Stanley will be administrative agent on the first-lien loan and KKR will be administrative agent on the second-lien tranche, sources added.
