Vice President at a bank is a glorified analyst

like

That's a bit of an over stretch...a VP in a bank is not very senior, and absolutely not comparable to VPs in corporates, but not a Analyst either.

I’ve been seeing the same, especially at Citibank but not sure about their corporate hierarchy. I have to disagree with EY 1 though. I’ve worked at jpmorgan and VP there was higher (analyst and associate were only two before that).

Haha same, the ones I’ve seen are all from Citibank.

VP is like entry level manager in banking. Everyone is a VP

Are cover letters important if they don’t ask for one?

If I should be writing one, any advice how to format?

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.
