What summer analyst position should I take? Blackrock ETF and index investing or Goldman Sachs PWM Investment Management?

I have two summer analyst positions, but I am having some trouble deciding. I have an offer from Blackrock's ETF and index investing team in their San Francisco office. I have another offer from Goldman Sach's PWM consumer and investment management team in their Los Angelos office. They have the same starting salary. Also, I would not have to pay for housing in San Fran since I can live with my parents. Thanks for your help/insights!!!

Hey, I interviewed for BlackRock ETF Index investing too. How long did it take you to hear back about an offer. I got an email 3 days ago saying that they were still making hiring decisions and would update me soon,

As for what internship to select, it depends on what you would like to do and what opportunities can emerge after perhaps leaving said firm after x years. Personally I would go with Goldman purely for the fact of having the name on my resume. Anyone that see's Goldman is probably gonna assume your the shit and will put you in front of the line for any related positions. Plus Goldman Sachs on LA sounds pretty lit. Goldman internship will probably be more sales than anything else. BlackRock will be rotational and will have technical and no-technical phases (talked to a 1yr analyst about program) a lot to learn. However, BlackRock is the largest asset manager and that alone on a resume is impressive as well as having a more easy going vibe at the San Fran office (i visited it).
