Where to Invest Now?Call me crazy for asking a forum for investment advice, but I think there's some people with value to add here. Have heard over and over that equities are currently expensive and potentially bubble-esque, rates are going up and therefore prices of debt are going to go down, etc. Sure there are... 9 months 9 hours
Analysts in Same Group Recruiting for PEJust was wondering if people have had any experience with the dynamic this creates amongst first years. Would a firm be less likely to interview multiple first years from the same group? Most groups seems to have the tendency to place people at or have relationships with certain PE firms, whether... 1 year 1 week

Moving for PE Am currently a first year at a BB investment bank in NYC. Was wondering if people that have moved from NYC to a different location for PE could shed some light on the process in general and explain how much more straining the interview process is. I am open to most other metros (leaning towards... 1 year 5 months
PE in different location than Analyst stintAm currently a first year in what WSO monkeys would call a top group at a BB investment bank in NYC. Was wondering if people that have moved from NYC to a different location for PE have found themselves to be more challenged in the recruiting process than those who stay local. I am not sure where I... 1 year 6 months
Expectations for HolidaysI know this is not standardized across banks, but wanted to get a general feel. I am joining a BB as an IBD Analyst, and do not really know what to expect for times of for Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Family and friends have asked questions about whether or not I will be able to see them/come home... 1 year 7 months
Is investing worth the headache?I am an incoming investment banking analyst at a BB, and have also spoken to other classmates who are entering into some career in financial services (audit, consulting, trading, etc.) about this same concern. I have a decent sum of money just sitting in a checkings account, and feel like a... 1 year 8 months
Barclays Financial Sponsors QuestionsI have seen a lot of threads on how FSG's role with the model, day to day activities, involvement in the exits, etc. is highly dependent on the bank. However, I have not seen anyone comment on how the group operates at Barclays. If anyone knows, do analysts in the group get some modeling experience... 1 year 11 months
Looking for a specific tie but don't know...I have seen multiple people wearing this tie/brand of tie, but don't want to ask what it is. The colors are red and blue, but sort of a bright/lighter version of the colors. The pattern is almost "chain" or link like on some, and on others the pattern is like that of the Example 1 attachment. I... 2 years 3 months

I understand that it is probably easier for firms that have branch locations in other cities but are based in NYC than those that are based in different locations. 1 year 6 months

Highly underrated post. People will say all the...Highly underrated post. People will say all the time "oh yeah, I pulled x amount of hours this week," and most of the time it's not even close. Wish I would have read this going into SA stint. Another way to think of it is that the average person works 40 hours a week: 9-5 for 5 days. Now,... 1 year 7 months

For example, in college, if I pay for a 50 dollar taxi for myself and one other person, they will buy me a drink to... 1 year 7 months

Barclays, UBS, Citi, Jefferies, DB, Cowen, and some smaller banks all recruit on campus. They have also put people into BX, Goldman, and MS over the last few years. I worked at a BB this... 1 year 10 months
