Would you choose an investment job at a private, partner-owned long only fund where you’re guaranteed to never lose your job& can be a multimillionaire; or at a very top L/S HF where the bottom performers are fired each year, but you could make multimillions in a good year? Another related q, would you forego the offer at the first place to potentially get the offer at the second place, knowing it’s very competitive?

These seems like incredibly personal questions that should be calibrated against your risk tolerance

First question is a personal one based on risk tolerance. Second question - I would definitely not do this. Great that you’re at another top fund & likely means you have a good chance, but with how competitive these roles are it is not even close to guaranteed. IMHO you should try and move up the 2nd interview timeline and push back the deadline to accept the first offer - try and put yourself in a position to choose between two real offers

like

First thing to do is to make personal decision on role you’d take if you had both offers in hand It definitely offer 2 - then I would first go to them, tell them you have a different time sensitive offer but you want to go to firm 2 and would appreciate if they could advance the interview timeline Then I would go to firm 1 and ask for some extra time to speak to family, decide, etc. how much you ask for depends on how much time they initially gave you, your read of how accommodating they are etc. Broadly I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask firm 1 for 1-2 weeks to decide, and firm 2 to finish your interview process in 1-2 weeks

Nothing is ever guaranteed fwiw. That said, if you’re able to get a job at a marquis HF, one could argue that you’ll likely be able to place into another without issue

Former. Burnout is real

Me, I’d take the first. No to 2nd question.

Is it normal to be threatened to be fired after making mistakes that you had no idea were mistakes in the first place? I’m a junior litigation associate at a small firm, and the managing partner says things like “you aren’t providing value to the firm” or “you’re being paid to avoid mistakes like these” when I make mistakes due to, what I believe, to be a lack of guidance and instruction. As in, they could be easily avoided with a “please keep in mind X” or something like that. Thoughts?

As per the trend in Current "Great Resignation" even big MNCs are facing offer rejections and it is very hard to onboard IT employees because everyone has multiple offers, Only those companies have some advantage who supported employees well in Covid period. Employees were in fear of job lost, and maximum IT organization's took benefit of this fear, now they are only facing maximum offer rejections.
