Ah jeez - I feel this. Definitely cried my fair share when starting out. Thankfully got my footing under me but boy was it a rough start.


😪 Been there


OP any perspective you can share here? It’s not okay for your number one emotion at work to be crying. I’m so sorry - would love to help you find perspective if you can share the ‘why’ behind this. 😘 feel free to IM me too x

Curious to know what others think about the importance of both firm and in-house experience for mid-level positions.

Many mid-level postings prefer/require both firm and in-house experience. Is my experience disqualifying from such postings?

I had a break down in law school. I was briefly hospitalized and missed part of a semester. I feel guilty about it. I have issues, but looking back a lot of it was a combination of my existing alcohol use, depression, and immaturity. I have flashes of memories of me begging to be hospitalized because I felt so sad and afraid of failure. I don't know why I acted that way,. I don't like that person, and it's hard for me to imagine a world where I find peace despite my terrible behavior. Cont

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.

I was recently promoted, and now part of my team report to me. I'm now able to see their pay rates and I am honestly so disappointed in the company. Especially since we just gave annual raises in Feb, plus we can all see where the money is going and it's not to the employees. Makes me sick
