I'm a junior right now and I already sent out my apps for IB, but my old firm offered to set up a PB internship with a top BB for me

They said that IB is overrated, that the money isn't as good since 08, and the traditional IB -> PE path is a path where fund managers and MDs basically treat you like shit.

They also said that it is more likely for me to own a HF or PE fund by using the family office as a track record instead of climbing the analyst -> PM / VP -> Partner ladder
