Then again, this is what summers are for, so don't feel like you are choosing what you want to do for the rest of your life. I don't mean to double post, but this post reflects a newfound passion that I feel I'd like to pursue in my career. I am a sophomore and am deciding between a summer sophomore offer at McKinsey in consulting, or a summer at Goldman Sachs in their Sales and Trading division. Both are in New York, and I would love to do both as I loved everyone at each firm and could see myself doing well at both firms for the summer. However, I think my long-term goal is to do Private Equity, and thus IBD would probably be the best preparation, but because I am choosing between these two non-IBD options, I wanted to know which opportunity the forum would find as better preparation, and ultimately-- which would help most in trying to get a job in PE out of school.
However, I like consulting because it is more client based, and I do enjoy the travel part, and the large-scale side of analyzing a company. Dude, you will not be traveling as a sophomore SA at McK. I would pick McK though. Consulting is way more interesting than investment banking.

He will definitely be traveling at McKinsey. I would go with McKinsey , simply because of how insanely competitive it was to get into their sophomore program. Count yourself among the luckiest ones. If you want to do PE you should take the position at McKinsey. Never even met anyone during my summer there all the contacts I had made were on the desk or various other desks throughout the city. Definitely McKinsey. At least at McKinsey , you'll get operational and business experience.
McKinsey is a no-brainer. At least the skills learned in consulting can be tweaked for PE interviews. WSO depends on everyone being able to pitch in when they know something. Join Us.

He's a sophomore though, so he still has another internship summer afterward. I have already worked for McKinsey and now I am in prop trading so my 2 cents: Those are very different things going on. In one you deal with the markets the other McK is more like investment banking in the sense of things flow by processes and are a lot more burocratic, driven by long meetings, discussions and "problem solving".
What do you wanna do in the long run? What are you more curious about? Since this is just an internship, you can make a mistake now and it won't hurt at all. Do you like to travel? My aversion to traveling and not being the owner of your schedule was one of the main reasons that I left McKinsey. Don't believe everything you think. Dec 13, - am. I have nothing to offer..
