London, UK. Currently work in real estate finance for a retail/commercial bank. 2+ years exp in debt (mezz and senior). Graduated 2018 from UK target in Real Estate (around 1/5 modules were finance). Looking to get out of retail and move to corporate. Think IB might be a push but MBD at GS sort of think more likely. I’m doing CFI modelling course to get my skills up to scratch. Any other suggestions? I think CFA has slim to no value in my situation but open to hear otherwise. Cheers

MBD at GS is significantly more exclusive than IB

Ah. Was told otherwise by an analyst in RE IB. Must have been bullshitting me.

I used to pay $99 a year for Hootsuite all of the sudden they auto billed me $588 for the same pro plan. They sent me an email stating I was getting a lot of features they had upgraded through the years and had to raise the price. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you find another source to use instead of Hootsuite? Are they fair in pricing?

Up to what point is it feasible for an MBB analyst / associate to switch into banking in the US without going the MBA route? How many YoE? I know it's generally tough to switch after a couple of years, but since MBB is so prestigious I'm wondering how much that helps. You can assume transactional experience.

What about in geographies other than the US, anybody got insights?

Thanks!

As an analyst, how early should I expect to get to do modelling?
I started a couple months ago and feels like everyone else (MBA associates, experienced analysts) is asked to do the modelling and I haven't been.
I lightly mentioned they don't need to hesitate to give me modelling pieces so I can learn but haven't touched anything yet.
I also get that with a time crunch, it's easier this way.
I'm worried this is a sign they don't trust me and I never will get to do any modelling/will be let go.
