Can someone legitimately explain to why bankers take so long to come up with LBO models on the financing side, and refuse to allow us to review them in detail? We provide preliminary feasibility analysis on loans on so many deals and the difference of what the bank comes up with is always minimal, but always takes a month? Can anyone walk me through what happens on the other side? It tends to be very frustrating.

Probably because they're working on so many deals at once and because they don't report to you. It's a real pain to have yet another party further critiquing their work past the immediate client.


I do totally agree there. Can’t tell you how often working with other consultants/providers on deals with a couple cooks in the kitchen always tends to feel a little adversarial during the interactions. It is intense and definitely not for people without tough skin because the entire nature of it is constantly being told you were supposed to provide someone with something yesterday that you just found out about.

Hi folks.

I wanted to know if HashedIn provides permanent WFH. Atleast for senior employees.

During my HR discussion, HR told me that senior employees like you (SE III) don't have to come to office.

I want to know if it's true or not.

Also please let me know what is the notice period in HashedIn.
