Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I really cant even begin to tell you the number of people I've met who want to do IB or want to do MC but you ask them why, and they really really dont have a good answer.
If all you want in life is money, go do IB. It pays very well. If you want a bit more of a life and still get paid a helluva lot more than whatever your getting paid now probably, go into MC. If you want to make a little less than your peers for a few years, but when they are sitting in New Jersey at 10pm at night, you are at home watching the Simpsons, go into something corporate.
Yes what good is money if you dont have a life and are not happy
MC sounds like a good option.
I maybe way off base here, but based on the profiles of the the people working at top private equity firms, it looks like most of the people in private equity were at one point in Investment Banking.
Morever the job description of someone in Private equity seems very similar to that in M & A/IB.
So from a lifestyle point of view, is working in private equity really different from working in M&A or IB?
On a slightly different track, would early 30s be late in life to switch to IB or other finance related roles such as equity research/financial planning etc?
