I always see people talking about exit opportunities in HF, VC, or PE and never anything about staying in IB.
People always talk about"getting through" the tough hours to move on...
So does anyone really stay in their role and move up through the BB as their first choice?
Also, PE is known to also have crazy hours, as does VC (I think hedge funds are more flexible).
So if you are leaving to escape crazy hours, aren't you are just going to be dealing with a similar situation?
