I know this topic has been covered a few times - and I've consolidated the information below. What I'm trying to get a grip on is how these firms are grouped and/or ranked. Rank/Group as you see fit (Pay, Prestige, Life Style, etc.). I just want to get a handle on where they sit. Obviously there are no Top Tier names (outside of consulting (, )) but my impression is that some of these firms are legit and decent places for a Top-15 MBA grad to go after.
I'm heading to into my MBA program next summer and I'm coming back to South Florida. However, since I'm investing in a top MBA, I'd like to work at a great firm despite not heading to the street.
Here's what I have:
Landenburg Thalmann (Miami HQ; Boca Office )
Cassel Salpeter & Co. (Miami)
P/E (all great places):
