Why would any associate+ banker choose a BB over EB?
I totally get the brand name argument as an analyst planning to exit, but what perks do being at, say/ / , etc offer over the EBs in the long run? Looking at the bonus thread, EBs clearly pull a significant amount more in the long run at the associate to MD levels. From a reputation within the industry standpoint, I'd think being somewhere like Evernote is pretty comparable to GS when looking for deals, and you'll make millions more over the course of your career.
Why doesn't every senior banker at BBs just jump to EBs?
