Gen-Y hours/week !?

I've heard recently that GS et al. are developing new programs to "protect" their analysts from 100 hour weeks. Marketing gimmick or genuine improvement?

If you're a gen-Y in a 100 hour week M&A group, what do you think is the best approach to implement similar programs? Going up to your staffer's office and asking for less hours or more perks will likely be seen as "gen Y don't know what true work is!"

I don't think you should suggest that to your staffer. If you can't handle the hours, maybe banking isn't for you.

DEFINITELY AGREE. The real question is whether what GS et al. are saying is really true?

So you basically want to tell your bosses that just because GS is doing it that they have to as well? Welcome to the unemployment line, wait you prob haven't been working long enough to qualify.
