All retail banking roles will be eliminated in the next 20 years, only high net worth individuals will continue to rely on human investment advisors.


As long as it’s not the basic lowest tier retail it should be fine

I am guessing you mean institutional equity sales? It comes down to which asset class you are most interested in. But ultimately, it’s mastering the art of sales. That skill will be valuable and interchangeable down the road.


Intellectually, it’s probably less challenging than derivatives/structured products, fixed income, and fx/commodities sales.

Job won’t exist in 20 years is my guess

I’m a business analyst in financial services with 1 yr of BA experience and 3 years of overall experience. I’m looking to start applying/ transition to a new company (preferably in tech) spring 2022. BA roles and qualifications really vary across companies. Any recommendations on certain skills that a young BA should definitely have for a competitive resume? I feel that I may lack some tech skills so curious to hear from you all. Thank you!


Me: I've been working 14 hr days non-stop. Employer: We've all been working hard. It's a tough time for the industry. Me: It's not sustainable and I'm burning out. I need help. Employer: Totally get it. We are understaffed so we need you to be flexible about taking on more responsibilities. Me: If I'm taking on more responsibilities, would my compensation be able to reflect that increase? Employer: It's tight this year. Economy/pandemic etc. Me: I'm leaving. Employer: *surprised pikachu face*

Best time to quit Just got my h1b visa approved today. I want to quit soon. But my start date at the new company is jan 10th. The company holidays begin from 23rd dec to jan 1st. I am confused about when to quit If I quit before 23rd then I can give a good 2 weeks notice but I’ll lose out on my unemployment days(can be unemployed only for 60 days on h1b) . I’ll also get a good break before my new job. Can I put in my resignation just before the holidays to quit on 3rd?

Favouritism? I got screwed over, paired with another art director. Same job title, salary, started at the same time. After doing good work together, I won awards individually, turned down a job offer to stay in this company...was let go and it turned out my cd who dealt with my pay etc and decided where briefs went had never raised the job I turned down with management, I was earning less and he had been giving the good opportunities to the other junior ad. Ended in me getting a pay off...


Hi - I’m new to this bowl, so this may be a repeat question. If you are WFH, do you feed your dog a lunch? 🍔. I used to only feed 2x a day, but now that I’m WFH, I feel compelled to give a few nibbles when I’m taking a break for lunch 🐕 🐩 🐶
