A1... idk what friends you have in banking, but no one gets to the office at 6, more like 9 or 10 (at the associate level at least.) The biggest downside of banking is the unpredictability, I.e. having nights and weekends blown up

How old are you?

32

If you are willing to do the hours, take it.

I know right, but sleeping at home + bonuses

Op I would say 32 is the limit for starting. I am 35 and would consider going back, but more in a chief of staff or internal strategy role. I have done banking before. If you have the physical stamina, go for it.

New salary minus weekly blow costs. Prob worth doing.
