Is anyone else struggling to comprehend the fucked up state IB has brought you to?
I am just beginning to comprehend how mentally fucked up I am from IB this year.
I feel like an empty shell of a human being so far gone that my mind has been wiped on how to human.
I am not depressed, this isn't a cry for help, but going from 0-100 after covid and never leaving 100 for a year has left me not able to understand 0-99.
I quit three weeks ago and expected a typical rebound from burn out, but being forced by my firm to work a minimum of 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, completely cut from reality has left scars that I genuinely did not expect and so difficult to recover from.
I seriously am at a loss for words on how big of an impact this apparently had on me. They have wrecked me as a human being.
I am not even trying to complain and get into the argument that IB is no longer the oppurtunity it used be like other threads, but how have banks been able to be so consiously unwilling to adapt to such a rapid deterioration to the well-being of their employees thats continually accelerating by their bullshit solution consisting of a quarterly email saying they "care". How is a disconnect at this level continuing to exist...
