quitting investment banking to start own business after 1 analyst year?
I'm sure this is covered ad nauseum, but just wanted to see in general what people thought.
I'm 6 months into my first year analyst stint in IBD, and I haven't particuarly enjoyed it thus far. Don't get me wrong, I've learned a ton, but my true passion doesn't lie in finance. Although it's nice to have a steady paycheck right out of college, I think this is the perfect time, while I don't have any true huge obligations (I graduated from college debt free), to venture out on my own. I am planning to leave after my first year bonus hits the bank.
For someone who has no interest in pursuing a career in finance and is just in it for the initial learning curve / training it provides, what do you all think about foregoing the second year?
