Hi there, am an SO to someone in banking. He's one year out to promotion to VP. He keeps telling me it will get "better". Not sure what it means and I would really like specific details. He still works to 9/10/11 longer most nights. Still working most weekends.
I asked him what it'll be like post promotion and he said getting home round 7:30 with maybe some work later at night/weekends he can do from home. I'm not sure what that means exactly--exact details on the level of consistency in my live would be helpful? He'll be home at 7:30, can spare an hour and then will have 3-4 more hours of work? Will it be like that most weekdays? Will he still be working from home half the day or more, most weekends? How often will it be volatile where he's working to 2-3 am in the office again again? Any other details you guys think may be helpful..
I'm trying to figure out long term what this means. I have been with him through this analyst/associate years but I am pretty wiped out. He insists he wants to stay in banking.
