    All of them are for IBD. Almost sure I'll go for JPM. Thought JPM would have the longest hours?

    I prefer BB banks than top boutiques, especially for internships, so:

    1st JPM: prestige, dealflow, training programs, good time to join JPM
    2nd CS: higher chances to get converted, doing OK, might be a better fit for some people (especially for girls...)
    3rd Rothschild: boutique (not my thing), low conversion

    You can´t really make a huge mistake in this decision since the three are top banks. But go for JPM.

    Edit: Regarding hours it all depends in which team do you end up

    With JPM your hours are based on your workload. My partner works in IBD and providing you get it done, you're out by 6.30pm/7.00pm. On the other hand if you have tight deadlines you may have to work longer hours. It's also true about the team comment that Eok made. That does have an influential factor too. It does also depend on how your manager is. Some can be ruthless i.e they make you work the long hours.

    My friend at CS said that nobody leaves the premises before 6.30pm because that's really looked down upon. She also said there's alot of *****iness between the grads and generally she feels the politics.

    Also, if OP will be placed into a sector team, then he'll also have to look at his firm's ranking in capital markets.

    JPM Caz dominates UK ECM business but that's because the corporate broking arm is so damn strong... in EMEA ECM exc. UK they're still top five though, but Credit Suisse is top three with a lot of deals early on this year (just looking at IFR review etc.)
