Question for more experienced bankers, when did you start to feel comptent at your job? For example, I am 5 months in and am still making small mistakes and getting corrected, feeling like I’m putting in the work and time but still miss things, thoughts on normal progression?

A good analyst is competent at 12 months.
You should be able to add value at the Associate level - not just churning the ‘asks,’ but helping to craft messages.
VP’s can do craft without much oversight and can handle multiple deals at once.

Each role is a stepping stone for the next. Observe the more experienced analysts, take on board all critiques. I can’t trust you to craft messaging if you can’t faultlessly convey the message I’ve crafted.

MD1, does crafting messages include identifying the analysis that needs to be done to drive the story? What else is part of crafting messages?

Every analyst can breakdown the business unit financials.
But I’d expect a senior associate to be able to tell the analyst what are the tail/headwinds in each business unit and why they’ve effected those areas. Describe why they’ve over/underperformed and what steps (additional targeted capex, restructuring costs, etc) they’re taking to rectify the problems or continue their industry leadership.

Six months for complex roles

For analytical work maybe 1-2 year.

However this job evolves as you move up the ladder - as a VP now my role is more client facing and I feel like I’m on the learning curve again.

And as Md you’ll need to learn the sales skills - so yea you almost never feel fully competent until many years as a banker

So originally it was $2300, I'm asking for $2380. They are saying they banked on the $2300. Should I try to negotiate $2350?

Advice on FT Recruiting

Context, just wrapped up a PE summer analyst position at a MM PE firm. Great experience, training, deal work exposue, just not somwhere I saw myself full time.

They took a very small % of class for FT, and I did not receive an offer. I recruited FT for IB last year, so I am rekindling some of those connections + new ones. Does anyone here have experience / advice for FT IB recruiting? I understand it is an uphill battle, but possible.
