Front office is where it’s at but it still depends. We don’t know anything about either of the jobs.

RBC is a solid tier or two lower than Morgan Stanley, so if your friend is conscious of prestige he should take that into account

A1 - do you think that factor would affect b school apps or future consultancy hiring?

It’s 100% possible, but difficult to judge b school possibilities without knowing the full applicant profile and more specifically what they do at Morgan Stanley. I would bet that more Morgan Stanley people go to top tier business schools/consulting companies than RBC
