Operations (BO, MO) is a FUCKING nightmare

Friends

Please be wary of all operations (BO, MO) work. It is stupid; it is a waste; it is asinine; it is to Othello as was Ophelia. Unsure where this post should go but it is truth. If you are an UG or young professional, do any role but BO MO

A thoroughly retarded tardigrade should be working in MO BO. If you are an undergrad, do not be seduced by BB (bulge) or fancy names; being a MO analyst at a high-caliber fund is < a bitch intern at a beta fund. Something Undergrads may not know without hearing it from within the ditches.

Warning.

I spent a couple of months after undergrad working at a hedge fund doing trade reconciliation work. It was quite probably the worst four months of my life - the nature of the work was mind numbingly boring and I had an abusive boss. Looking back now, as an investment professional in a role where I am excited to wake up everyday and go to work, I would not trade the BO experience. In many ways, it lets me keep perspective, remind me how bad life could be if a few people along the way hadn't taken a chance on me, and to remember to never take anything in my professional life for granted.

Story time. How did you make the switch?

Neil91, good job. It is heartening to see that some made it off the flaming ship
Slothsloth asks you share the story, though I see someone "gave you a chance", ie good luck/networking/people seeing what a bad-arse you are. Ergo, I'll assume this is how you changed from cancerous back office gibbon to mighty PE ape?

Glad to hear. Thanks for the commiseration, this soothes the agony.

Hey just gone through his posts. He actually did an AMA. The secret lies somewhere within. But always happy to hear it from the man himself.
