(Just an email that was forwarded to me--didn't write it--thought it was good for a cheap laugh) Editorial: Interns â€" They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To Where the hell is the summer guy? Pete, or whatever the fuck his name is. I need him to make some photocopies and buy me a Coke. Wait a minute. Heâ€™s home? Resting? Itâ€™s only 2am. Heâ€™s sick? What the hell is that? The guyâ€™s only been here ten weeks and heâ€™s got mono? What a pussy. Boy, they donâ€™t make summer interns like they used to.
Hello all, I'm a junior at a target school, and I recently signed on to do my summer at UBS LA. I've been interning at a local UBS (the ubiquitous wealth management division) for over a month now and for one reason or another they didn't ask me to do a piss test until three and a half weeks into it, after I had already done everything else (paperwork, checks, etc.) I was caught off guard when they asked me to take it, as it seemingly came out of the blue, and I had used my room-mates Aderall the night before to study for a test. However, they said they needed it within 72 hours, so I had to take it in two days, no way around it.

I put this together for all you Class of '07 monkeys to help you with your transition. Enjoy. Recruitment Work-life balance Work-drinking balance Work hard, play hard Work hard, drink a lot We have a collegial environment. We go out drinking every night together. We like to have our own social lives. We go out drinking every night alone. We have a more mature environment. We drink at work instead. This is a lifestyle group. We are desperate for analysts. This is a laid-back group. We are desperate for analysts. We don't believe in face time. We are desperate for analysts. Our associates and analysts go out together frequently. Our associates are very lonely people. Our MD goes out with us frequently.
All right, fellow monkeys. I'm on the tail end of a 132-hour workweek, so just a brief post today. So there I was, middle of the night, massaging an industry growth chart into an artificially-rosy picture that makes our pitch more attractive (a procedure that many of you will be familiar with). The associate comes over and tells me to add an approximate CAGR arrow. No problem. I calculate the CAGR. Noticing that thin red lines are used for means/medians throughout the rest of the book, I decide to use the PowerPoint draw tool to create a thin red line with an arrowhead at the end.
The All Nighter Blog: How i-Banking is like the Wizard of Oz Itâ€™s Christmas and youâ€™re sitting back home stateside, watching the Wizard of Oz, and it strikes you that the wonderful world of i-banking is very much like the wonderful wizard of Oz. DOROTHY: Dorothy is none other than yours truly, dreaming of a place where there isnâ€™t any trouble. Ok, a little more specifically, dreaming of place where there isnâ€™t any trouble for yours truly. A place where youâ€™ve made MD and nobody can throw shit your way. A magical place where smartass associates try to catch you off guard with a well though of question that you really should have thought of in the first place, and you simply shut them up by saying:
How does GS-IBD analyst compare with DB S&T associate? (both London) It would be great if you could analyze it on grounds of differences 1. Salary+Bonus (36k and 58k base pays respectively) 2. Exit options 3. The obvious question being of course how much does the GS brand name matter. I am willing to take a long term view and not bother too much about the initial pay difference. I am an MBA from India.

"The WSO Investment Banking Interview Course was my main study guide and I landed the exact job I wanted, so obviously it was a great investment. The packet was excellent in helping me understand balance sheets, all that technical stuff. I went through 2 months of training afterwards at [BB bank] so I understand the packet even better (almost 100% now)...ha!"

"I had made it to 2nd and final rounds at a few PE funds, but no offer. The first interview after going through this course I made it to the final rounds and got an offer! I think WSO PE package made the difference - in fact, one of the LBO modeling tests I got in the 2nd round was almost identical to one of the 1 hour LBO ones in the package. Having that modeling practice and the confidence going into the interview is priceless.."
