False. Life long bankers don’t get burn out or experience it differently. You can’t do this long term if you’re not always thinking about work

Not true. You can’t do this long term if you ARE constantly thinking about work. Neurosis =/= effectiveness. Just perpetual misery.

The people that stay figure out a way to their jobs better than you without thinking about it as much

Where can I find reasonable work/life balance in cyber? I love the work, but want to focus more attention on family/friends.

Anyone really struggle with lectures? I find it challenging to do online trainings when I have to listen to an hour of a recording of someone talking over a PPT.

I always end up 2x speed, which helps, but even then I manage to get distracted. I find it way more efficient to read materials on my own.

If anyone has strategies to make things like this more bearable I’m all ears! 🙏🏼

My firm’s policy requires a minimum tenure in current role before interviewing and switching to another internal role. I’m in interview processes with other firms for the role I want, but would prefer to do that role at my firm. Is there a way to negotiate with HR about this? I understand I’d have more leverage with a final external offer. But I worry by then I’d not have time to secure internal offer by the time the external offer deadline comes. How would you approach? TIA
