Despite Bad Press, Goldman's Still the Place To Be, Say MBAs

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program (“Bash the Banks Paying Big-Time Bonuses”) to bring you this important message (via Bloomberg) from MBAs nationwide seeking gainful full-time or summer employment:

Goldman Sachs headquarters“We couldn’t give a rat’s arse what the media says about Goldman Sachs and the rest of the bulge bracket, nor do we care what our parents or grandparents or the rest of you might think of us. If an investment bank, and especially the one with the Midas touch, makes us an offer, we’re going to take it faster than you can say seven-figure bonus.”

In addition to noting that the mountains of recent bad press about big Wall Street bonuses has done nothing to dissuade MBA students from seeking investment banking jobs (the only thing that would dissuade, of course, would be the opposite: news about small-time bonuses), Bloomberg points out that the firm that everybody loves to hate as of late (and whose new HQ is looking pretty close to being completed down at 1 World Trade; take a look at a December '09 shot at left) Goldman is the fourth most desirable destination to MBA hopefuls, behind only Google and two consulting firms: McKinsey and Bain.
