There is no such thing as long term now. BO is pretty toxic too. Any better options? At least get into a rotational program?

The workplace culture has changed over the years. Employers used to value loyalty and provide hands on training. Nowadays they post “entry level job” asking for 3-5 years of experience, knows how to build models and code in python. This is not to say you won’t find a lucky spot where you will grow professionally in one company, but that’s the exception not the norm.

Better pay, offers more growth and you’ll be leaving a toxic environment? Don’t waste your time thinking, do it ASAP

Right the answer should be clear but I’m nervous that the team and manager lied in the interview. I just feel they promised so much and acted great and it could be a lie? Or maybe it’s just my ptsd from my past toxic jobs

I’d say if you have options keep looking. Back office is soul sucking for those with ambition

Indeed, trying so hard to just feel relevant.

I’m confused how a back office role can pay more than IBD?

I wasn’t in IBD. It’s fp&a corporate finance so salaries aren’t really that great depending on the company. Think Financial analyst for Spotify, Warner media, etc

Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
