There’s a 1st year analyst on my team who needs an extreme amount of handholding. My associate and vp have turned to me to help her because they don’t have time. The problem is all of her “issues” should be things she knows after a year here or she just doesn’t try to find things out on her own. How do I tell them I don’t want to be doing this anymore? She needs to sink or swim at this point.

One of the most important things you can do in banking is to hold on to the coat tails of the right MD. Hard work pays a bit but you need to know how to work the system if you want to stay in IB.

Thoughts on moving to Seattle from the East Coast? Living on East coast currently, but have no need to be here for a job. My girlfriend and I are looking for somewhere cool to live where she has an office for her firm and I’m able to do what I like (hike, fish, hunt, etc). By the time we move I’ll be self employed so I’m not worried about weekly client travel from the west coast. I’m currently in Philly and she’s in DC. My entire fam is on EC. Is Seattle as great as everyone says it is? Thanks!
