i don't get the reference, do you mind explaining?

edit: oh i see, they don't pay their analysts. I'm fully on board with the Tobin jokes now.

It's not a joke, Justine Tobin is the founder/CEO of Tobin & Co., one of the most elite botiques and well respected M&A advisors in the world. Thousands of people compete to earn a spot at her exclusive bank. Ever hear of the "Goldman discount" where GS pays slightly under street average due to their respected name? Well, Tobin & Co. has their own discount where they do no pay their analysts at all! This is due to their prestigious name. So congrats on the Tobin offer, and I'd give anything to be in your shoes.

Congrats! A decade ago, I made the same post. First responder told me that even though I broke into IB, I'd never break into PE. Lasted ten years in the industry and put seven figures in the bank. Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum.
