We got a coin

As a token of appreciation for working 100+ hour weeks for over a year with no incentive bonuses nor perks to juniors, here's an actual token for all employees with the founder's face on it! I truly wish nothing but the worst for senior management and their families. What am I supposed to do with this?

Do you actually think they're taking the time to engrave each and every coin with the appropriate junior's name on it?

It's time to go the No Country for Old Men route. Next time you see him, ask him what's the most he's ever lost on a coin toss. Then, proceed to tell him to call it. If he asks what he's calling it for, advise him he's been putting it up his whole life - just didn't know it. Hope it goes in your favor.

I have been holding off on leaving until bonuses hit, but may have thrown that through the glass door of an MD's office and walked out if I were in your shoes.

easy answer, do what Kanye did to his grammy award, toss it in the pisser and take a leak on it. or dump depending what kind of mood you're in

Go all the way

Is this real? Sending employees a coin with your face on it seems like the most vain thing possible...right out of a movie.

Haha "Limited Edition" - as if Steve has his own mint churning these things out on a regular basis and there is a "standard" edition.

The "2020-2021" makes me think there might be another one next year...

I'd be surprised if any media outlet published this, FT Partners isn't known by the public (and it's mostly known only as a meme by bankers), so it's likely not newsworthy enough.

I guarantee you the CEO got bullied in high school. This is way of flipping off the people who did it lol. 

I mean it is a gigantic lapse in judgement thinking that the juniors would appreciate this, but I bet he sees himself as the GOAT much like DJ D Sol does with the music

Reality is stranger than fiction. If this were on a show like "Billions" everyone would lambast how unrealistic and "Hollywood" the writing is.

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.

Put it in a vending machine like Walter White did with the big eyebrow car wash owner's first dollar in that breaking bad episode

If you don't mind me asking, do you get good comp / bonuses at FT? I interviewed there but didn't get the position. Seems like you guys should be pretty well-comp'd considering how hot fintech has been recently and the fact that FT closes a ton of deals.
