I'm currently a junior at Emory Goizueta setup to do a in accounting but am exploring some alternate career paths. I am interested in staying in Atlanta.
So I've been reading some posts about/ and see that the salaries are good with 60-70k base and some bonus all for < 80 hours a week.
However, what I am worried about is job stability. Is this the type of job where everything depends on sales and if you don't deliver you will be fired quickly? Or is this the type of job where you can keep your head down, do your work, support the relationship managers and maintain good job security + career progression. I understand that bringing in new business is necessary for all higher levels of almost any position (including accounting) but how soon is it needed in PWM and is it needed to advance or to simply keep your job.
Also can someone confirm what typical hours are and if the culture would be more lax in Atlanta?
Thank you for your time.
