Couldn’t you land a big 4 FDD role? It’ll open a lot more doors into banking for you. Heard of even BB hiring straight out of big 4

Never mind! If you’re coming out of college. That’s a really good move.

Any fishes who have been tricked/lowballed when leaving a big 4 / mbb to a smaller firm, and they bring you in at a more junior role than you had before, what impact does it tend to have on your CV in the long run?

Does anyone do extra work for your company that you are not being compensated for? I’m not talking going above and beyond.

I enjoy it, but we’ve now had the committee for 1+ yr and there’s no sign that it becomes formalized into our “day job” roles or formal acknowledgment. I would be happy with a bottle of champagne at this point. Thoughts?
