I would say the capital markets is definitely underrated. Most people think of M&A off the bat but leveraged finance is a hot market right now. I echo on sustainability. Most IB firms are gearing resources into Sustainability efforts. Goldman has it’s one Sustainability unit, so did Credit Suisse until recently. Black rock is leading in that space, there is great interest but more expertise is needed on how best to create positive impact.

Hi, any additional colour on the SRI breakup at Credit Suisse? Seems they’ve been split between wealth management and investment banking.

Hi Everyone,
I am currently on a staff 3 - Senior Analyst, Technology consulting in D&A. I joined on Nov 2021, 3.3 yoe. My counselor told I have got rating Differentiating and told that he is struggling for my promotion but only blocker is that in this cycle they consider PPL who joined before 31st oct. And is assuring that in Dec-Jan I am getting promoted for sure. Would you please help me if this can be true or he is just exaggerating? And what comes after staff 3 and name of designation?

Technical Q: If an application doesn’t have a change log, how do you get C&A of the change list? From my experience you cannot use the ticketing tool as your population. Tried to check with the migration tool to see if that logs the changes that were migrated, but that also does not store every change. The goal is to obtain a population of changes so that we can test a change sample.

Hey guys, currently am in a development program in corporate banking (underwriter role) with rotation to a more sales type role (relationship management) right now pay for me is around 73k plus 10k bonus & this was entry level. started in July 2021. hardly ever work more than 45 hours a week. However the work is pretty dry.. I hear lots of associates go the RM route after two years where base salary is 100k but more potential for big bonuses.Thoughts on CB or should I try to find IB/PE roles?

Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10%

Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business

The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly?

Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
