I work at MUFG and did corporate banking. I liked it, good work life balance, but limited career trajectory compared to the corporate finance option. I'd go with the latter. Especially with them selling Union Bank, there's a lot of stuff happening right now, and depending on what industry you'd cover, your portfolio might get significantly smaller post-sale.
