Exit Opportunity Insanity
Every other thread is talking about exit opportunities and how you should do XYZ because the "exit ops are better". Personally I feel that life is a pretty twisted journey and is you are smart and take advantage when the opportunity presents you will be successful and happy. Frankly, if you are in IB, regardless of the group, firm, part of the country, you will be able to do a lot of amazing things.
So I ask this question :
If being fisted had great exit opportunities would you do it. Honestly, from the way people plan their entire life one step to the next I think the answer would be yes for the vast majority of people.
