Strangest thing you've seen/heard at work?

One of the things WSO has shown me is to not always judge a book by its cover -- some of you have some real interesting things that happened to you. That said, what are some of the most strangest things that have happened to you while you were busy working away? Or something that's happened while you were out with co-workers?

Perhaps some of the stories will serve as a source for what-not-to-do for the up-and-coming analysts.

Off the top of my head... there was this analyst at my bank who would straight up sprint Naruto style (google it if you dont know) through the office all the time. People would tell him to stop doing it (1) because it's weird, (2) he'd stomp loud af, (3) potentially dangerous, and (4) dude please just stop. And he'd just be like "no man it wasn't me" while still out of breath.... so yeah, if you're looking for stuff not to do - don't do that.

Worked in a BB, the co-head of division used to talk to himself routinely.

First couple weeks in, I was grabbing a coffee next to said guy, said 'Morning', he shot me a look of surprise and continued to go back to muttering to himself.

I immediately thought I had fucked up and he was on the phone with a wireless headset - he was not.

Just goes to show, if you make it rain, no one gives a fuck about what you do.

Geez, all that real work and still no real world skills, apparently. I should have clarified, I meant that you've never worked a big boy job and made more than minimum wage, give or take a few bucks. To actually see people who got into IBD from daddy's contacts on the job, you'd still need to actually land an IBD job, but we all know that's never going to happen.

I did crap work in HS and college too. I also realized that getting a good job was the way to go. I didn't blame other people for my initial failures, worked my ass off, and demonstrated humility to my coworkers and bosses. For some reason, my contacts stuck their neck out for me, and now I work in M&A. Pretty sure you have no clue how to add value to an investment bank, and lack to soft skills to persuade anyone to give you a real world opportunity to learn how. News flash: good academics and contacts you've failed to properly leverage are not real world skills.

Teachers and bankers likely don't have the same definition of success. A college prof once told me a $40k/yr county govt research position was a good job. Being able to think for yourself...now that's a real world skill.

One intern pointed to his grilled cheese and said "less beef and more cheddar" while a VP was walking by.

    • 10
May 29, 2017

Perhaps I'm just dumb, but could someone explain this to me? What is the intern implying?

May 29, 2017

beef = having something against someone; cheddar = money; so basically, less drama and more cash. I'm pretty sure the kid got a return though. Maybe the VP appreciated the humor.

    • 3
May 29, 2017

It would be really ironic if the only reason he got the return offer was because the VP actually got his grilled cheese with a small amount beef and appreciated more cheddar.

1) I enter into the (London BB's) bathroom in a weekday afternoon, and summer analyst is WASHING DISHES in the bathroom's sink. The bank has no kitchen, and this intern always had lunch with us (at your classic London's take-away places such as Pret, Wasabi, etc.) and dinner on Seamless. As of now I still have no clue of whose dishes he was washing and why.

2) One guy in the same office (VP) would take the calls from his headset, stand up and start moving across desks while doing yoga / women-weight-loss-commercial-style exercises involving large movement of arms, legs, bending on knees, etc. Most walls of the floor were glass/transparent, so while working on your pitchbook you would see a couple of times a day this guy wearing a full suit + shirt + tie outfit moving through the desks while doing these exercises.

3) In a London Top MM Bank, 4 guys didn't receive a bonus because, after multiple malfunctions to the vending machine, security decided to check the night tapes, and realized these guys would consistently (2-3 times/week) shake the machine to steal a bag of chips which would come out easily. Their total comp: probably >PS100-120k, price of the chips: PS0.90.

4) (More of a funny story than a real mistake) At a training event, analysts arriving late would have to do karaoke in front of the full class, with a song picked by the other analysts in the class. I still have recordings of i) a guy and a girl singing Barbie Girl with opposite roles (i.e. the guy singing "I'm a Barbie girl..." and the girl "Come on Barbie let's go party"), and ii) a very shy Japanese analyst (who was late because he got lost in London) singing "Boom boom boom - Vengaboys" in a very thick Asian accent

5) New analyst (3 months in) joining the team to a party and gets completely hammered at the pre-party at the VP/staffer's apartment. He tells other people to go ahead to the club, as he needs some rest before going out. A nice female associate decides to stay with him to help him as he's clearly too drunk, so the VP leaves them a copy of the apartment keys and goes to the club with the rest of the team. The associate and the analyst never arrive to the party. When the VP comes back home, he finds his carpet full of vomit, and a set of syringes and other medical equipment on the floor. Basically, the guy fainted shortly after the team left and had no signs of life, so the associate called an ambulance, and paramedics had to inject something to keep him awake/conscious, then the brought him to the hospital for a couple of days. He came back to work on Tuesday and apologized for the behavior, mentioning some family issues as well. The team was pretty cool though as seniors never got to know about the accident, and VP didn't really do anything about it (and also paid himself a PS450 professional service to clean his carpet). The analyst left after 2/3 months to become a movie director.

  1. That is pretty strange lol... I'm not too sure how to respond to that one.
  2. At least he was getting into excellent shape?

I'm not sure which story had the best highlight... dish washer SA or movie director analyst... Did movie director analyst make good movies at least?

This didn't happen at my building, but the building that housed our ops team had a guy approach the front desk and ask for a girl in ops--guess it was her ex-boyfriend. The girl says no and her manager goes out to the front desk to ask him to leave (don't know why he didn't call security). Long story short, an altercation brokeout at which point the guy throws a bunch of lighter fluid on the manager with the intent, I imagine, to light him on fire. Around this time security jumped in and tackled the guy.

single stall bathroom on the floor echoed throughout the whole office really really loud for some reason. New analyst who sat really far away from said bathroom, meaning he must have not realized how loud it was, had to go #3 every single day 1-2 times a day.

It got near impossible to keep a straight face when talking to execs, coworkers, clients etc. Everyday we saw him walking to the bathroom everyone knew to vacate!

after 3am things could get a little interesting in the BB where I was at during my internship... playing volleyball with a cardboard box across desks wasn't unusual... as well as hit foam golf balls across the floor (usually aiming for an analyst's head)

yes very true, but in a very non-financial city where salaries arent too high. A lot of job security (as you can see above) and based on hourly compensation we did well (never in the office past 530), 5 weeks vacation 18 sick days a year, 70-85 base plus bonus's (usually 15-20% of salary)

Never happened to me, but be careful with those footballs. At a BB a few years back one guy once hit a sprinkler and flooded an entire floor.

Oct 9, 2017

We used to toss the ball around and it came SO close to hitting the sprinkler ... I'm actually shocked we never put ourselves underwater.

Our entire office had a PA system where anybody from any desk could dial an extension and speak over the PA to everyone. It was generally used to page people, but very late at night when only analysts/associates were left we'd dial into the PA and play music from our speakers. The music would broadcast to the entire floor. Was a fun way to rejuvenate everyone.

All sorts of bad stuff happened at our Christmas parties / staff events. We even had an analyst get arrested and HR had to go the next morning and bail him out.

At my old shop we had Office Olympics and at "midday" 6 pm office basketball shootout games. We even bought a trophy and the winner got to keep it at their desk until the next game. We used to figure we are going to be there until 10/11 pm anyway, why not take a break for 30mins.

We paid a guy to try and drink 1 Gallon of milk in 30 Mins without vomitting.

We used Excel's type to speak function to crank call other analysts. those were the days :-))

Oct 9, 2017

My point about it not making sense is if a firm's culture is to not limit employees and let them use their own discretion for days off, they just wouldn't have a quantified guideline, they wouldn't have any limit on sick days. This is how it was at my last firm, and that makes more sense then telling employees they can take every 16th day off.

Well all I can say is it looks weird to the outside world, but no one cares THAT much. Just a funny thing I observe then I move on

Jun 5, 2017

I was coming back to Boston from an offsite trip one evening when I heard that a good friend from the NY office was in town and heading out to dinner with his project team. I asked to join because I wanted a free dinner and was added to the list to go out to Limoncello (the flagship restaurant for a last-minute corporate dinners) in the North End.

At dinner, I meet the team and learn that several of the people at the table are new to the firm, including a few new ops personnel who were in town to visit headquarters for the first time. It was a good dinner, free as expected, and as the meal concludes we are invited to meet up with some of the senior managers for drinks around the corner.

We get to the bar and the senior staff is a notorious crew. One manager who is known to pay for everything, you can walk up to the bar and just assume he has an open tab. My immediate manager is also there, as is a third manager who is known to get a kick out of buying rounds of shots for the analysts (rarely partaking himself) and watching them get wound up and start acting foolish. I suspect this is why we were invited. There were more managers around, but the point is that the senior staff were known to party and were THERE TO PARTY.

The evening proceeds and one of the new ops analysts from NY, a 22-year-old newly graduated male, seems to be at the bar more frequently than the rest of the team. I believe that he was coming from a scarcity mentality and believed that tab would be shut off shortly, so he wanted to get what he could while it was available. The problem with this approach was that he was getting wasted very quickly.

At some point, his attitude shifted from "I'm just happy to be here" to "I definitely want to hook up with my immediate supervisor," which was not going to happen. He was quickly shit down and, in a fit of rejection-induced anger, he stormed out of the bar into the night.

If I was sober I would have been concerned that he had never been to Boston, an already difficult-to-navigate city, and about his current state of drunkenness, but I just saw him leave and assumed he was going to wave down a cab and go home. The night continues. Eventually, my colleague receives a phone call and appears very concerned. He doesn't say where he is going but bolts out the door and I don't see or hear from him until the next day.

Apparently, the analyst who stormed out earlier either found his way to a tough neighborhood or was so angry that he started an altercation. Either way, he definitely lost the fight. He was found eventually by a friendly Bostonian who decided that he was in bad enough shape to take him to a HOMELESS SHELTER, where staff found my colleague's business card and called him to come pick him up. He was not at work the next day.

Nobody told the managers about the incident to spare him embarrassment (plus we like the free drinks and don't want to give them an excuse to stop that policy), but he did have a long talk from a supervisor later to stress the importance of controlling one's alcohol intake and maintaining professional relationships. Everyone felt pretty badly for how things worked out for him, as this did have the chance to end much worse than it did.

TL;DR: Analyst blacks out, hits on coworker, gets rejected, gets in a fight, ends up in a homeless shelter.

Maybe if he had gone and started a diversity event in place of a fight, he would have been lauded by the supervisor as a fine example of cultured drunkenness.

An analyst on the floor washes his hands for literally 12 minutes in the bathroom 2-3 times a day. How do I know? I go in to take a shit and come out and this kid is STILL there, rubbing and scrubbing like he's about to operate a surgery. Not sure if this is normal to you guys, but this shit is WEIRD to me.

Don't say this in a banking interview:

Which superhero would you be and why? I want to be like Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor - me.

I've heard several people (guys) on the derivatives trade desk talk about getting pegged. Look it up if you don't know what it is. Weirdest bunch of goobers ever.

One time my director wrote me an email with 2 paragraphs of comments and explanations. When I turned his comments he gave me a wtf this wasn't what I asked for. I went back to reread his original email. I scrolled further down past the empty white space and saw he had written "nevermind, disregard the changes"....

This other time at a MM, one of the SAs was informed he would not be receiving a return offer. He was the only intern who didn't receive a return offer and was escorted out by security. Didn't help that he was middle eastern

Was there a big reason he didn't get the return and had to be escorted out by security?

Jun 10, 2017

yeah he completely had no regard for the job and while he did act very strangely that would lead to cause for concern, he was mainly escorted out because they were afraid he was going to steal stuff or tamper with data
