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... 1 year 2 months
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... 2 years 3 weeks
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. 2 years 3 weeks
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.) Do you guys expect more banks... 2 years 1 month

SA S&T to FT IBD AdviceI spent this past summer as a SA in S&T at a BB (GS/MS/JPM) in NYC, and realized about a week in that S&T wasn't a fit and neither was NYC. 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... 2 years 5 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 8 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 8 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.

I see the comments about total comp being flat...I see the comments about total comp being flat for analysts and don't think that looks to be the case. Top bucket last year at my MM IB for AN1 was $150k and $170k for AN2. While analysts aren't expecting $80K & $90K bonuses, flat comp would indicate $65K and $75K for the top band. 2 weeks 2 days
