As you can understand, i'm posting this from a throw-away account...i'm 6 months into my new job and my boss threatened to fire me because my "brain is too stupid and has a problem". the issue that caused it was that I didn't calculate a number correctly because i was new to the asset class and didn't think the specific way of doing it would be different from what I learned before.
Now, while I agree that the number was wrong and I could have been more careful, I wanted to see your opinion on what I should do with this---the original line he said was "I think your brain has a problem, your thinking process is too stupid, i'm wasting my time here and i'm going to give you 3 month". he was not joking about this and looked very annoyed. I'm not sure if i'm that stupid or I need to look for a job. This job/asset class is new to me, and previously I was working in a similar research/analyst role for 2 years but with an entirely unrelated asset class. He knows I was not experienced when he hired me, and I was very clear about it during the interview process.
Any feedback appreciated...Thanks!
