    For example does pay vary alot for people who work in say Equity capital markets and M&A. Which parts get the most generally or does it entirely depend on what the bank was strong on that year.

    Best paid division = division you perform the best in = division you are most interested in => stop worrying about what the pay differences are as you are still in your first year of uni and start worrying about which division suits your skills and interests the most.

    It depends on the transactions your group completes. This year, senior ECM bankers will earn more by far. At analyst level, it doesn't really matter what group you are in, you get graded and then all analysts accross the groups get paid according to the same scale.

    By the way, the majority of people in IBD don't work in M&A, ECM or DCM, most work in sector/industry coverage teams.

    The transactions you work on does affect your grading which in turn affects your bonus. So if you were working in a team where you were involved in many transactions yielding $30mm net IB fees, this will be reflective in your review. And if you didnt fak up, you will likely get a good review (and thus better rank and bonus) compared to someone who only pitched throughout the year (i.e. working in an underperforming team/division). So at the end of the day it does matter which team you work in. I know people who are good analysts in London, worked all year with no transaction experience (been pitching all out) but yet I got a better bonus than them.

    Trading profits and accounting. M&A revenues and volumes are dire.

    Its the 'I have a dream program as mentioned by Haz'. Before i went onto it i was split between IBD and trading but now i don't think IBD is for me. It's too boring and I think the trading environment will suit my personality alot more. Anddddddddddd i dont want to work 18 hours a day infront of excel.

    How long is it? And what do you guys do during the day?

    Good choice.
    We've had some training and netwrorking events some excel stuff. shadowing. General intern stuff but obv not as much as the undergrads. It's 4 weeks long. Its a good experience but the dream is GS

    However for now I am leaving this forum. I will return in approximately 2 months to start my spring week apps. I know if i start doing them too early I will be one of those people emailing human resources every other day. Just gonna do some CV building from now till October ( October is a good time to start applying right :o: )

    Cool, good luck. The DB programme, as well as the Rothschild gap year programme seem to be good feeders for the GS spring programmes.
    The Rothschild gap programme is a waste of time, it is glorified temping, you would be far better served on the DB one or accenture/prof services.
