Hey all, this community has given back to me tremendously in the early days of my career. I thought it would be helpful if I started a Q&A for those in ER looking for alternative exit opps, and I give some insights/experiences in both careers. More info on myself: Worked in 2 well-known banks for 3 years as an ER associate covering financial stocks -> quit and learned to code for 18 months -> worked as SWE in well-known IB and HFT firm for 2+ years and now chilling in garden leave -> incoming SWE in FAANG. I Will answer anything to the extent I won't give away my anonymity.
