is IB not actually that much about the money? Is it just more about the lifestyle?
I went into corp dev making basically same as what I did before in banking with very reasonable hours (which should be a great thing) and yet it feels like something is missing something because the pace is so much slower…am I a fucking masochist or what?
I used to think I was only in IB to make a lot of money - but now I realize that banking has an allure that is separate about money - it’s about the image of “being a banker” and that you’re doing everything you can to get ahead. Someone who is hardworking and ambitious in a competitive environment (whether this perception is true or not)
