Why do people shit on Back Office roles?
Is it really that bad? I is a role that is highly underrated. Very low stress, no all-nighters, no sleep deprivation. It's an easy 9 to 5 and cruise all you want type of role that will pay you 6 figures eventually.
Lastly, no one outside of finance gives a fuck and most people have no clue what high finance is anyways. Most people don't even know what back office is. So, what's the point? Why put other people in our industry down like that? The reality is even though back office doesn't generate the revenues for the firm, they are essential for the firm. Without back office/mid office the firm just doesn't function. To me, I think of a job just as a job. Really nothing more. Prestige is just a make-believe bullshit. Most people don't give a fuck. Probably 99% of people don't and yet we care so much about prestige, pedigree, and rankings, but in reality, we should be focusing on what makes us happy. I'm sure no one would be thinking about or a small boutique bank on their deathbed. Just my 2 cents. I don't know, what do you guys think? Maybe I'm wrong, who knows.
