Does anyone on here play in the NBA / NFL and if so what are the hours, WLB, and culture like?


Funny, but I’m genuinely interested in hearing more about what the company is like on the inside


lol I don't agree... Not sure why so many people think that an analyst role at a Pershing / Baupost / Greenlight type shop is necessarily that desirable. yes, the principals of those funds are raking in $10's of millions per year (even when they underperform) but if anything they can use their cache to underpay their analysts. That's not to say I don't think those analysts are making good money, I just don't think working for a superstar PM is really the pinnacle of success on wall street as it comes with some downsides as well. 


i think people should find buyside public research seats as attractive given the day to day intellectual rigor and engagement. yes, it’s true you might work less than you would in IB or PE, depending on the shop, but you’re 100% on during the entire 40-60 hr or whatever you do in a week. all things considered in the world, they’re good spots to be in… but of course, leave it to the shallow folks out there to only chase them for prestige. 


Why anyone cares or wants to work there is beyond me. No shorting or actual alpha generation, just beta riding. Way more impressed with someone who is at citadel or p72 where you actually pick stocks on a differentiated view. Also, where do PS guys go afterwards? Not really a marketable skill set to invest in 1 business a year 


Yeah but they get paid very well and have almost no turnover so who cares about marketable skills

You can never get a SM HF post without the pod bois jumping in. Yeah your $300-500k job is so much better than getting paid millions to “ride beta” 


Honestly you have a better shot at tweeting at Ackman vs. getting one of his 7 analysts to anonymously post of WSO


What’s the WLB life and is the work modeling centered? Or mostly just market research?


I checked out most of the investment teams background on linkedin and they literally all came from HYPSW -> GS (with a couple CVP/EVR) -> MF PE
