    just bored and actually thought if you people have opinions which firm you find most attractive in the investment banking area?

    my own personal opinion goes as follows, this is based on my visits into few of the banks and what interns have told me (ps: not based on salary you will earn obviously, as most are classifying that) :

    1. Goldman Sachs
    2. JPMorgan
    3. UBS
    4. CSFB
    5. Merrill Lynch
    6. Deustche Bank
    7. Citigroup
    8. RBS
    9. Morgan Stanley (Management shake up and a mess at the moment hence i rank it lower)
    10. Rothschild
    11. Lazard
    12. BNP Paribas
    13. ABN Amro
    14. Bank of America
    15. Lehman Brothers
    16. Barclays Capital
    17. Bear Stearns
    18. HSBC (the environment doesn't feel good)
    19. Nomura Bank
    20. Schroders (hears lot of bad internal news from them from professionals which discourages me a little)

    i have forgotten few but thats my rough list

    Greenhill dominate most the IBs for basic pay. Although I'm sure that wasn't Wolfie's motivation for putting them in his list. :P

    Edit: Bare in mind this list is based on next to nothing, merely a few conversations with people I know - who were no doubt very biased towards thier bank.
