Why the WSO Obsession with Acquisitions?
Damn near every post I see, someone is mentioning acquisitions being their long-term goal, their next move, their dream job, etc... But do these people even know what being in acquisitions is like? How can you have a dream job but have no idea what they do on the day-to-day?
Why are acquisitions the end all be all on this site? Everyone can't get into acquisitions in the first place. I don't know whydoesn't get more love too. My AM colleagues are super chill and get out earlier all the time before our group. Even an acq role at a pere 15 like mine is not all it's hyped up to be.
I'm not sure if it's all the users from the IB forum coming in and obsessively discussing acquisitions or not, but you guys should learn about other career paths. Half of you won't get the role in the first place, and the ones who do half of your illusions will be shattered within your first week on the job. Find something you really want to do, not what you constantly see on WSO. /end rant.
