    Sounds like Hbs grad. If you choose IB, I will start to short the market. When too many hbs grads choose IB, a recession occurs.

      Both non-technical roles? Tossup. If rotational analyst is technical (or has technical rotation) then DE Shaw.

      easily McKinsey.. rotational associate role is just the business operations side of DES nothing to do with the interesting work (investing).

    as i said earlier that de shaw offer is not "buyside" it's equivalent to an LDP at any old company. take McKinsey

    McKinsey - buy side will still be there honestly and you might be able to do better than a rotational at de shaw

    DE Shaw easily. Growth market, great brand, better comp. assuming you have interest in markers.

    Mckinsey - good brand but spending a lot of time on decks and not being able to implement, similiar hours but lesser pay. Only if you want to go corporate

    Would take DE Shaw if you want to stay in finance, but McKinsey will give you broader experience. Assuming DE Shaw comp is significantly higher than McKinsey all in
