Goldman Sachs hands down. You won’t regret it. They invest infinite into their people and opportunity is endless.

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.
