Not really buying for investment but would prefer to buy a watch which can be easily resold with somewhat decent retention rate just in case if the need ever comes up. Thanks

What kind of tax bills are other associates / VPs working with? Getting dinged over $10k myself. Guess I should have tweaked my bonus withholding more. Others in this position too?


Is there anyone in IB at the analyst or associate level who wants to do this for life? I just can’t get why someone would subject themselves to so much torture and then have all this money but no friends or family or relationships to spend it on when you’re single and alone and depressed by 30/40?

Thoughts on GLC Advisors?


I think my analyst is going to quit. I thought they were crushing the game: great work ethic and product, good attitude and sense of (slightly cynical) humor, one of our best analysts. Turns out all smiles and good attitude wasn’t working for them. Feel terrible about it. One for the analyst, two for our team, three that I had any part in it.
Part of me says suck it up. The other - prevailing - part is super concerned. So, check in on your juniors at a real level. The kids are not okay.

Advice on FT Recruiting

Context, just wrapped up a PE summer analyst position at a MM PE firm. Great experience, training, deal work exposue, just not somwhere I saw myself full time.

They took a very small % of class for FT, and I did not receive an offer. I recruited FT for IB last year, so I am rekindling some of those connections + new ones. Does anyone here have experience / advice for FT IB recruiting? I understand it is an uphill battle, but possible.
