I honestly don't believe there is an ultimate orchestral gig. Any of the top orchestras (chicago, boston, nyphil, vienna, etc) would be amazing (and somewhat unattainable) jobs. I really think it depends on the players in the ensemble and the conductor. With conductors changing posts so frequently, any of those jobs would surely be great at somepoint. And a lot of it is personal taste. Which in turn, that taste depends on the conductors intrepetation, hence making the conductor a prime factor in determining it. I think if you were to make it that far you'd definitely have an ultimate job no matter where you ended up.
