Wellington Research Associate

What's the outlook on going to Wellington as a Research Associate out of undergrad as opposed to something more traditional like banking? What does pay look like? Exit opps, MBA outlook?

... do you have an offer or are you asking for some other reason? Wellington is a top name in AM. If you're interested in the buy side, it's the place to be, especially since AM barely hires out of undergrad or in general. Else, IB for HF and PE exit opps

I have been interview and will probably get an offer. I'm just worried about the future of AM with consolidation and move to passive so idk if it is a smart move. Also, valuing equities doesn't teach much if any transferable skills. So just worried

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but what about a place like Dodge and Cox? Do the above comments still apply?

Yup, both of the shops mentioned are active focused. So these are shops who have professionals that know their shit, and can charge up for it vs passive. If you have an offer in Research or PM from either of these places, take it and don't look back.
