TFW you're satisfied with your career 😊 only when it also makes you slightly miserable. We bust our asses to move up and make ourselves suffer more - glutton for punishment 😈!

Lol so funny! Kinda Catholic.. (I'm Catholic- respect hierarchy, subject yourself to stuff that doesn't make sense that is miserable in theory and practice, don't question irrational rules, self sacrifice)

If my goal is to get to a l/s equity hedge fund in four years, what would be a better experience? 1) two years at a long-only buyside equity fund that is not heavy on modeling + 2 yrs at a different buyside firm or 2) two years at a boutique sell side bank + 2 yrs at top tier bank? I’m struggling to figure out where I’ll learn the most from and how I can be best positioned in four years 😩

Please try not to stress about layoffs. There is absolutely nothing you can do except prepare (if needed) and continue working as though your job is not in jeopardy.

Responsible me is trying to look out for future me by maxing out my 401K and other retirement accounts. Lately, I've been having doubts about this approach. I don't have kids and never will. I am not interested in living too far past 70. Probably have enough in my retirement accounts now/soon to make it comfortably to 70. With 30+ years ahead of me till 65, do I cut back on maxing out?
