I am in FAAS and almost everyone is away or offline by 6:30. Except senior managers (RIP)


Appears to be a passive aggressive response to the lower pay in FAAS, which is entirely logical. Pay up if you want people on at 8


Only have insight into FAAS and CMAAS. CMAAS is the busiest out of the B4 from what I’ve seen, and certain groups in FAAS get pretty busy (but less than CMAAS).


Have your hours slowed down now?

400 hours over standard this performance year


I’m in CMAAS and haven’t worked much OT yet but my office is pretty shielded. We help smaller clients with lighter work, not giant IPOs and M&A. Overall I love it but it’s likely very client (and market) dependent vs firm

which office are you in?

Hi all! I need your advice. I have been this position about a year and just found out HR does not have a job description on file for me. My direct supervisor just created one but most of my current duties are not even listed, and my duties were from our entry level position. I refused to sign(they asked me to sign for it) but what should I do from here? I’ll have a meeting with HR next week and do not know where to start at this point and I am irritated, frustrated, and disappointed. Thanks,
