I'm genuinely curious, but what about your current job is it that you're looking to change by moving to a BB? I've seen more people lateral to EBs than the other way around..

Several people have moved to BB despite our EB paying well, said they'll never get clients here and they hit director level and essentially get let go. Seems at a Bb you fill a dead, which is infinitely easier than developing a client base at an EB....plus I'm sick of lean deal teams. All that means is as a senior associate you're making edits yourself.

^ no client base? You sure you're at an EB? Talking Ecore, PJT, Moelis, Centerview, maybe Lazard here

I'm in healthcare actually, I heard it was pretty brutal there / culture was tough?

Bb has less burnout than eb. That being said you learn a lot about internal committees of which eb has less / different types. I think eb pitches more tho cuz no bs to rely on

You can't just blanket EB and say evercore moelis and centerview in the same sentence. Centerview is much smaller than moelis & evercore (and has many internal issues, I interviewed there and known people there), moelis focuses on middle market sell side, evercore is larger than both. Hard to gain traction when you're selling just advice vs capital. By no client base that's hyperbole, I mean great all the senior guys are from BBs, but I haven't seen a homegrown guy be anything but a (very good) execution monkey for them

1:1 with my VP

me: I'd love to learn more about the differences between Director/Group director/VP....based on that recent situation with "Candace", I'm thinking that she was focused on something I don't have insight on, so if I can understand where she's coming from I can prevent another mixup 😇

VP: *big sigh*...it...it wasn't you. Candace was wrong. I guess something happens when people get promoted to director, their egos explode and they don't admit when they're wrong 🤷‍♀️

I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
