First year analyst, still feel incompetent and like I haven’t learned anything
Started as a first-year analyst (/MS/ ) this past summer in a coverage group working remotely for most of the time. People talk about the typical ramp-up period for analysts but I feel like I haven't gotten that yet. Even though it's been 6 months I feel like I've learned and modeling as I've just been editing Powerpoints and doing bitch work for 90 hours a week.
Is this normal or a byproduct of WFH? Should I be more outspoken about wanting to get more technical exposure? My concern is I'm already staffed up on things that fill up all my time but 90% of the work is in PPT, and while I'd love to get more technical experience I don't want to get over-staffed.
Am I the only one who's had this problem?
