Top ranked team at BB versus well respected boutiques
How should one think about differences in trajectory, comp, buyside opps, etc. at a consistently top 3 ranked teamversus an analyst at a well respected independent shop that is not as highly ranked / established (e.g., Bernstein, Wolfe, New Street, Moffett, etc.)? I know that the BB role will have to do more banking support vs. deep differentiated research, but the experience and cachet gained from the BB is more certain given the superior reputation of the analyst. This is for a sector that is relatively hot in terms of market cap / buyside interest.
Edit: this is for an experienced associate role
