Banks bad? Of course not mate! If I misled you in such a way then my apologies. I'm spending hours talking about buy-side positions because the thread holder wants a hedge fund job. Hedge funds, not banks. As for general quant jobs, I have no preference personally.Your saying banks as if they are such bad things. Buy side isn’t everything, some people wish to stay on the sell side. Goldman Sachs qis is an example of a very prestigious banking position. Just make the best of your opportunity and you’ll end up where you want, simple.
