Vice Presidents and up: Is it easy to predict which analysts just won't last the long haul?

It’s quite easy after 6 months on a desk. Very hard in interviews. And there are always people who surprise you.


It really depends. Had an analyst on my team a few years back who had a great resume and interviewed well but couldn’t hack it once he came on board. Bad time management, couldn’t think creatively/on his feet, etc

Can usually tell after a few weeks of work, but it’s a confidence interval type thing. The longer the time, the more certain you become. I’ve seen some people who I thought couldn’t cut it after a few weeks completely change after 3 months in and have become very successful. While others who start strong tire out and lose motivation or give up. I’d say 6-9 months is really the sweet spot for when your mind is made up

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
