What sort of free stuff did you get during your analyst stint?

I'm starting my analyst program soon, so was curious as to what kinds of merch banks give out to new analysts. Standard items are clothes and bags, but anything unique your bank has given you?

My bank was shit at giving out free stuff. Only things of use were a laptop bag that ended up falling apart after a while though and one of those mini portable batteries for charging your phone. Otherwise everything else was junk - pens, notebooks, cheap water bottles, etc.

My current firm is way better. Patagonia fleece and Patagonia backpack are highlights.

This is what I've heard from the BB and EB. Some even give it to you before you start your first year

Oh nice! Were you able to keep it even if you left the firm?

Yep - ours to keep.

Tic disorder / muscle twitching, excess weight, alcoholism, depression and a couple of destroyed relationships

Duffel bag, some notebooks and pens, umbrella, chocolate (bank was Swiss), couple of hoodies, portable phone charger...

Also massive weight gain, a deep-seated desire to be liked and wanted, a further entrenched dislike of the French.

Let me get this straight. You are starting a job as an analyst, and instead of asking what to expect from your new job, you are asking what free stuff will you get?

You will definitely get high blood pressure (hypertension stage 2).

While that question is more relevant, it's already been discussed at great length in these forums. :)
