I would appreciate a lot of feedback and thoughts on various issues. WSO has helped me a lot and got me to where I am today along with M&I. I really value people's comments.
1.) First day. What do you as an Analyst or Associate like to see in a SA on their first day? First impressions are the most important.
2.) Do SAs come in during the weekends? My group told me in my interview they don't have face time and their culture is more closer tothan . I intend to be in the office at 8AM and do not expect to leave before 10PM. I also plan to come in on Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM - 4PM Is this a good attitude?
3.) I am in but I'm interested in possibly lateral intoM&A. I know this many not be "common" but I knew a guy from my uni who was in Global Transaction Services (GTS) for and lateral into after his SA. Would something that like be possible for me from > M&A and if so how do I go about networking for that? Should I try to get to know bankers? Ask to do some work for them in my spare time?
How do I do that without screwing my capital market chances?
