Quit the bitching
Times are tough right now, 100 hour weeks are the reg. There's no light at the end of the tunnel. But what did you fucking expect? Apparently one of the GS13 analysts joined a top group on the street and didn't know what a banker's 9 to 5 is.
After they spent their nonexistent free time putting together a deck about how hard their lives are, their lives are now the discussion of CNBC and other main stream news outlets. Let's be very clear: this is no way, shape, or form a good thing for analysts.
Does it suck working these hours without the bonuses of pre-2008? 100%. But shining a public light on our lives will do nothing but make it fruitless. A 96 hour workweek sounds insane to the average American, but so does bitching about only making a $40k bonus. There is always a populist backlash of our industry being in the public light.
If you wish your bank would hire 50% more analysts and cut your bonus, then go work in consulting or start a business, but don't fuck it up for those of us that knew what we signed up for.
