Note: I've searched the forums regarding training for FT BB IBD analysts but haven't found the answer I was looking for.
What exactly can I expect for IBD analyst training this summer in NYC? I'm at a regional bank (think Chicago/SF/LA) at a BB (think GS/MS/JPM).
I've already received pre-training modules/assignments and books to read. From what I understand, it's 6 weeks of classes and weekly test taking in anticipation of the series exams. I also already know the group that I'll be working for.
-weekends (do I have classes, work, or am I free to wander? My team isn't based in NYC)
-networking (are there consistently events throughout the summer?)
-perks? (I understand banks in general no longer offer such grandeur events that they once did, but any?)
-What was your experience like?
