How were the interviews? How was your personal fit with your immediate superior?

Roles are similar, comp is as well, assuming it’s the same city, it’s will likely come down to your gut feel.

Not an engineer but in front office roles you would consider the brand as well, in particular for less senior roles, and they are both top BB.

With all else equivalent go with the one with the people you liked the most during the interview process. Decide where you'll be happiest. Good luck.

Depends on location as well. If you live in NJ, GS jersey city location might be better off Please share the breakdown to help others here. Don’t worry we don’t you. Only know you as a pm.

NY office. Base $170k and bonus 20%

Congrats for getting two offers. I would go for GS for the brand value and considering their performance on the street. Every time I run Dealogic market performance data, GS is always in the top 2. I’ve never worked there but on LinkedIn it always seems like there are strong mentorship programs that have helped people to move up their career faster than other banks. Did you get this role through networking or just applying online?

like

Just apply online.

Are you more motivated by technology or by the business?
Which culture and values best align to you?

Out of curiosity, what’s the offer?

Mind sharing the comp? MS will likely be more laid back compared to Goldman especially given the groups.

Thank you all for the comments. Let me answer to all questions.
Both interviews were equivalent but GS was in detail.
Both HMs were okay in a way as there would be a lot to do as both teams are working on new initiatives.
I am motivated by both technology as well as business. Being in an investment bank i think for a project manager business would matter more.

Location- NY for both
TC- $170k for both

What’s your yoe? Tc for VP looks bit low. What’s the breakdown? 150 base and 20k bonus?

No, $170 base and 20% bonus on base.

How do you decide? I have anxiety especially around my career, which makes me look flighty and indecisive imo.

For example, I had an MD approach last week about a new project and ask if I'd be interested in joining... I said I'd talk to my current manager and see as I didn't want to burn bridges but I honestly just don't know. Is it a good career move? Am I interested in this?

Im just exhausted from having to make decisions. I think part of it is just wanting everyone to be happy.

Offer #2 is a 1-yr contract but remote whereas I'd relocate for McK to a LCOL-ish city I'm not familiar with. McK's role is my top choice. I'm likely going to say yes, but it feels wrong to leave 11k on the table. Thoughts?

I’ve been seeing all of the Instagram and Linked In posts from agencies in town showing their “commitment to transparency in hiring” and to hire more minorities in light of the BLM movement. I knew the numbers were bad, but holy shit, not THAT bad.
It’s infuriating to me, as a POC how many fucking times I applied, emailed and reached out to so many of these agencies without getting even the time of day.
I’ll believe their supposed commitments, when I actually see the results.
