The folks at Wall Street Oasis have put together several rankings of investment banks after analyzing data and comments from their employees.

To come up with their rankings, they analyzed data on all 5,000 companies that are in their database and thousands of rankings from Wall Street Oasis members. Today they’ve released their rankings in the areas of pride and prestige.
