Chicago IB HeadhuntersAnyone have a few names of headhunters that cover the Chicago IB scene? Currently at a MM firm in a different city, trying to lateral to Chicago. I'm guessing some of the larger HHs (Pinnacle, Phoenix, Glocap, etc.) cover firms in the area, but was just wondering if anyone knew for sure who has a... 7 months 3 weeks
Goldman SA SuperdayI've got a buddy who's going through the process today and I was surprised to hear about the logistics for his superday (I know IBD is having one today and I think he mentioned securities as well.) First half of the interview is about two hours and starts mid-morning. After interviewing you're... 1 year 6 months
MTM/Custom Dress ShirtsI'm looking for a site to get solid MTM dress shirts from. I'm aware of Indochino, Blank Label, & Proper Cloth, just curious if anyone has a go-to ($100-150 price range) shop that I haven't mentioned where you can enter your measurements online. 1 year 6 months
JPM 'joins' GS in the battle to win Jr...JPM is apparently about to roll out a firm-wide policy regarding the work-life balance for Jr. bankers. The plan is supposedly going to set in place 1 weekend per month that each jr banker will receive off (compared to the 36 hour/week rule GS announced in November.)

I now want to pursue MM/boutique IBD in Chicago/Minneapolis/Dallas/Denver/Atlanta for FT. I have two options; try to land a FT IBD gig through recruiting... 1 year 11 months
LAX in FinanceJust read an article on Bloomberg which oozes on and on about ex-lacrosse players on wall street. Is their presence (as well as athletes from other sports) what its made out to be? I've heard plenty of times "wall street loves athletes" or some other cliche, but I haven't encountered many at all... 2 years 2 months
Bonus cuts are one thing, but now Seamless cuts?Macquarie, after cutting bonuses for many of the analysts has now cut Seamless allowance. Crossed the line, guys. “Macquarie is making further cuts to analysts. Weekend Seamless is now $25/day, cut from $40. All analysts are trying to leave. Morale is extremely low.” http://dealbreaker.com/... 2 years 2 months

DB back office giving double pistols to the streetApparently the work of back-office employees at DB helped it land a piece of Apple's $17B bond offering. Either the WSJ is a major troll or BO employees FTW. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323463704578494740076540374.html 2 years 2 months

Either, analysts haven't been told their number yet (unlikely in most cases as they'll be paid on 7/31), or people don't feel comfortable posting the number online (myself included). The numbers are good this year... 22 hours 35 min
