Been working in MO finance for two BBs so far. Recently got an offer for equity research at a well known Boutique..
I've been interested in equity research all along, but there is one drawback...the analyst apparently is tough to deal with and is a women (I am not sexist but I have TERRIBLE experiences working with female bosses).
I've personally talked to the associate who used to work under her (this person recently got an offer on the buy-side) and he told me that he didn't have pleasant experiences with her..She is basically political, doesn't give a damn for her associates, doesn't teach, and held him down in terms of promotion (another junior associate that got hired by the company in another sector got promoted faster than the associate under this female Analyst)..
Considering that as an associate you will be working super closely with your analyst and she will determine your fate do you think it will be a bad idea to join? In terms of choices I could go her to do ER, go to a internet company to do corporate development/internal M&A/or maybe b-school..
What do you guys think would be the best option....
