That's how I went about it. And then you talk to the HR lady for the formal paperwork

Crazy how banks will just let their analysts and associates walk without even changing the hours / staffing load. Will it get to the point where there are no lateral guys to hire and whoever stays after bonuses get absolutely crushed?

From the banks perspective, as long as they have thousands of kids lining up to work there is no point in changing culture. They are basically playing moneyball. They over hire knowing that they just need to find a few who are a perfect fit for things to work.

We've had a few lateral hires but they've been nothing short of useless (don't blame them at all). They may start helping out around fall time, until then though it's still hell

The number of junior bankers running for the doors exceeds the amount of junior bankers needed to process the amount of deal flow. As such, more people get burnt out and leave. It's a self-fulfilling cycle, even for GS TMT right now.

Doing this soon, but to lateral to a competitor. Can anyone provide color on when (how many days before new start date) and how I should do this? Do I have to mention I'm going to a competitor? TIA
