I'm new to this site and have been really impressed about the quality of information available. I've picked up so much about the industry just from browsing the different topics over the past few hours and wanted to get your perceptions on different banks. Well, anyways, some info about me. I'm a junior interested in a investment banking interviews possible.position in investment banking and . While I'm throwing apps out to many of the banks, I've been targeting middle market banks based on the current job market, I'm from a non-core recruiting school, my 3.6 GPA, and the fact an internship at a solid middle market would put me in a good position for full-time recruiting. I've seen a lot of seniors from my school failing to land a IB gig this fall and thought that I would benefit from setting a wide net to get as many
I wanted to get your impressions on the following banks in terms of overall firm reputation/prestige, deal flow, culture, exit opportunities, and other important factors that I might have forgotten. I have been in contact with alumni and other contacts at these banks and feel that with more research and preparation I would have a good shot. I don't neccesarily need them strictly ranked against one another, but it would be helpful to see how they compare in addition to your general thoughts.
