Hedge Fund Lunch BreakJust wondering how long you guys take for lunch at work. Do you typically go out for lunch or simply grab something and eat at your desk? Personally I prefer to take around an hour off to clear my head a little - and most guys here do the same. 4 months 1 week
Are BB Asset Management Long-OnlyI'd always assumed Asset Management at BBs are long-only. But I'm not sure now.

Networking while employedI'd suggest start with your friends from school and analysts at your current firm. I think your mentality right now is great. Just go out and make friends. And opportunities will present themselves. 3 months 3 weeks
Family Guy vs. South Park vs. The Simpsons I always wonder, with all those references to 80s pop culture, would the demographic of family guy be significantly different too. 4 months 2 days

De le te[quote=IBBanker] french grass: (Interested in this as well). In terms of pay, I can confirm CDPQ (Quebec) is shit at the junior (Analyst/Associate) level. What's "shit"?

Brilliant professional strategy for rapid...Agreed. "Politics" does matter. Usually age is the last thing I care about. You can be a 23 year old and right out of school, but you are smart as hell. It's the ones who are incompetent but controlling that annoy me. 1 year 3 months
