Fuck prestige

I can wipe my ass with prestige. That's how much it means to me. The desire for prestige stems from insecurity. Whether you like it or not lmfao. (I'm talking about those people that find self worth from the name of the bank they're in. You know who you are.) The second you get rid of the desire for prestige you will make much better choices. Younglings, don't fall for the prestige trap. It wears out quick. Instead, what you should focus on is the value of time. OWN YOUR FUCKING TIME. Doesn't matter how you get there. Just get to the point where you can do whatever the fuck it is you want to do without thinking twice about it.

To be fair this reads exactly like what someone who isn't at a "prestigious" firm would write. So take that for what you will. Prestige also opens up better exit ops which = more $$$. So you can wipe your ass with prestige but I would rather be at GS than UBS.
