UBS ADDRESSING GS SURVEY..RIDICULOUS
Did any analysts just listen to the junior banker committee fromand how they're going to address work-life balance? It was ridiculous for a number of reasons, and I'm honestly somewhat offended.
They had MDs talk about how they unplugged from work by swimming etc, encouraging juniors to just log off and do the same. Like an associate would not be up to our ass and screaming if we didn't answer the phone because of exercise?
They congratulated themselves and said they were ahead of the market because they gave us a meal stipend. Like that's not the bare minimum to do.
They said they're all ears and happy to help, sorry about the deal flow and ridiculous hours but offered 0 solution or policy changes. Excuse me?
They shaded the analysts and said they cared about us (juniors) from the very start because they gave us a stipend and didn't need a survey to force them to do this... like yeah, but there are still so few analysts across most groups compared to seniors, associates are being worked to the bone and lashing out at juniors, 110+ hour weeks, etc. either make a real change or don't, don't fucking pretend you're amazing and that we should be lucky to be tested so well. Anyone else feels the same?? I'm pissed. Plus, no fucking AirPods or iPads or pelotons..
