Seeking advice for a friend. He called me this afternoon basically saying he was being put on a PIP, this is after the company had said a few times he was not learning the role fast enough, only executing duties at about a 20% accuracy week 1 of PIP, week 2 60%, now we are at week 3 back to 50% (UA role, has been there since June). Boss said significant improvement is needed by next Friday. Looking for tips, suggestions, should he already start looking elsewhere? He loves this new job.

Up to what point is it feasible for an MBB analyst / associate to switch into banking in the US without going the MBA route? How many YoE?

What about in geographies other than the US, anybody got insights?

Thanks!
