Thoughts on the current tech banking scene in the Bay Area? Looking at making a move out west and seeing lots of lateral openings including at the VP level. Some names I know are looking plus the other usual players. MS Menlo, JPM Tech, Liontree, CS, Wells, Moelis, Baml, Citi, Barclays Menlo, UBS, Lazard, GS TMT, PWP, PJT, Qatalyst.

Also interested, seems like SF is a deserted wasteland nowadays. How would lifestyle be for a tech banker out there nowadays?

Bump?

Yes, it’s a wasteland - currently looking to move closer to fam for this reason. The upside is rent is a bit cheaper right now. It’s a great city in so many ways but I wouldn’t recommend a move here at this moment. It feels empty - most of my friends have moved out of SF or the state.

The downsides are lots of property crime, violent crime increasing (horrible attacks on older folks), the city has a layer of grossness to it, homeless issue increasing, incompetent DA and local politicians. However, I’m also thinking kids in a couple years so I’m motivated to make the move now as I’d never raise a child here.

Advice on FT Recruiting

Context, just wrapped up a PE summer analyst position at a MM PE firm. Great experience, training, deal work exposue, just not somwhere I saw myself full time.

They took a very small % of class for FT, and I did not receive an offer. I recruited FT for IB last year, so I am rekindling some of those connections + new ones. Does anyone here have experience / advice for FT IB recruiting? I understand it is an uphill battle, but possible.

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, impress the heck out of the panel and push for that higher salary. You'll be surprised how open this conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open/upcoming roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.
