Why "MOST" Of You Should Strive For Bottom Bucket
besides the 5% of people on here who genuinely like finance (nerds), most people just want to collect a pay check and go home, at least from literally everyone I chat with.
Lets say you work 9am - 11pm. you only have like 1-2 hours of free time before you pass the fk out.
If you want to be a top bucket nerd, you'll have to give up your EXTREMELY SCARCE free time at work for some MARGINAL and DIMINISHING RETURNS in terms of work effort.
Trade that precious ass time for what you say?......... like 10 grand after tax at most. Does it make sense when your time is so scarce after work to get a little extra dough? No
does it hurt your ego to strive for middle bucket or bottom bucket? Good, fk your ego, no one cares at the end of the day, swallow your pride.
just don't be dog shit and don't get fired
do the bare minimum and coast
thats how you'll make it to associate
then to VP
then to MD
not to fking burn out and go to some Shite corp dev gig or PE which is the same shit
bottom bucket and just above the cusp of getting fired, thats where its really at.
fk the good / busy staffings.
I'd rather play more golf.
