Recommended strategy for summer internship?

I have a quant research internship for the summer at an investment bank. Does anyone have any advice on whether to try and recruit for full time on the buy side, or try to secure the full time offer and work for a couple years before making a pivot? Also, in investment banking (like M&A) it seems like Goldman has the most prestigious name, is there something similar for quant roles in banking? Is it still Goldman?
