I will be going to Moelis/HL RX in LA as an analyst next year and was wondering where analysts from smaller banks go if they choose to not recruit for PE/HF or stay as an associate. I am really excited to be joining the group because I liked the people I met but am questioning how much I'll enjoy the industry itself once I start. I'm concerned because I chose the bank for the great people and small office but now I'm wondering whether it will be hard to leave high finance if I choose to do so.

Will recruiting into a different job be more difficult than from a bulge bracket because my firm is less-known to people outside of the industry? Where have you seen elite boutique analysts go if they didn't want to recruit for buyside jobs or become an associate?
