How often does your firm drug test?

CaliguyRE

Took a labcorp drug test for the job starting Jan 1st, not sure how much they drug test or if they keep drug testing. I was at a medium sized REPE before this and they didn't drug test at all so I have no idea. Does your firm drug test? And if so how often?...

Wow Litecoin.

Why am I even invested in stocks? Cryptos have made people millionaires overnight but meanwhile, I'm over here excited on the 20% dividend increase on Boeing. I'm thinking about just liquidating all my holdings, and buying Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. THOUGHTS?!...

2018 FT Houston Housing

The Blind Shoemaker

I am an incoming FT analyst in Houston and I am starting to look for apartments now. As all of the Houston housing threads are a bit dated, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to live. Would it be a good idea to look for a roommate as well?

Does Anyone Compete Athletically?

SeekingSpread

I'm hoping to start training for a cycling race in the spring and wondered if anyone else does any sort of competition. Careers in finance obviously aren't the most hobby accommodating (I guess I shouldn't complain since I'm in AM), so finding multiple times a week to put in 100 miles on a bike seem...

What's your biggest regret in life?

jnhadekjs

What's your biggest regret in life and if you could do it differently, would you? As I grow wiser and older, it appears to me that choosing finance and accounting was the biggest mistake of my life. This is not because I'm doing poorly but the work in itself is very repetitive and boring. Up until ...

Millennial Side Hustle

WolfofWSO

So some of the zips that work on my team continue to toss this buzz word around as if Peter Drucker coined it himself in his most recent HBS Case Study. What is the deal with this 'gig economy' I keep hearing about? Am I the only one who wants to sleep and have fun while I'm away from work? How...

Any of you here ever bartended before?

Postgradwonderer

Not in high finance so the work hours are more laid back and left my old job a little over a week ago after getting an offer in NYC. It seems like back in my college days, bartender was the job to get but even now when I have been out of college, a handful of guys seem to be able to do that on top ...
