Have you guys ever made a regretful lateral move? How to avoid?
Just curious if anyone actually made a very regretful move in the past and how did you manage that.
I guess many of us lateraled to another bank mostly because of culture / comp. Usually relationships deteriorate well before we made the move so not always feasible to just go back to the old firm after a few months.
Have you guys ever joined a new firm that sucked even harder? How did you manage that? Suck it up and gtfo in less than a year or do it for longer or just beg the old boss for return?
Why did you guys fall for that in the first place? Was it because of the bonus promised? Nice people in interview but anal at workplace? Any red flags and lessons that can share for us to spot these traps early?
Thanks a lot guys!
