Finance

Do people in finance get white hair sooner than in other industries? I'm just 27 and already getting strands of white hair which started after I joined a high stress role. Any advice?

Recruiter said in re: to Supply Chain Manager role that the company could do lower six figures. Have to imagine that she really means low 100s, right? 250k is still lower six figures.

So many burned out colleagues I've met over the years are planning an industry exit strategy, either soon or down the line. Are you thinking of leaving the biz, for what, and why?

Is it true that if you don’t hear back within 3 days after an application/employee referral it’s usually a no go? I’ve heard that from a bunch of people.

Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.

I am currently practicing insurance litigation but am looking to transition into corporate law (M&A, private equity). I have heard horror stories about this practice area though. I am looking for input from those who practice in this area. Do you like it? Is it interesting? What are the hours like? It seems a lot of people in this area are looking to get out...am I making a mistake by looking to get in?
