So alot of people from bulge bracket are actually going to small buy side firms (pls correct me if you disagree) as I have observed from any lay-offs, but MOST are actually people who have a steady position who want to change. I am in bulge bracket and I’d say my position is pretty secure and the bank is doing pretty well (though I know a part of the bank is buying up all the sht and im not sure what they think theyre going to do with it). On the whole people think that our bank has weathered the storm. SO… what do you think of a move to a v small buy side firm? yes, one of those alternative managers. The financial rewards will definitely beat this place for sure, but what about long term? any advice appreciated.
