Equity Research Dead end?
I’ve been thinking about trying to get into the Equity Research Department at a top bank where I work in Commercial banking as an Analyst. They usually hire people from other departments for an associate role which doesn’t really pay much but could be a great role to learn although after hearing so much noise of budget cuts and job losses, I’m starting to feel that it would be a waste of time to pursue this path. I’m looking for some insight from people who are working as an ER analyst - what do you guys think? Alternatively, I can move into Corporate Banking which provides better job security but then you’ll have to meet sales target and also bring clients if you are looking to advance.
