Did anyone else hear about a summer analyst dying recently at a Chicago MM? Apparently he had worked some crazy amount of all nighters. Unclear as to what the exact cause of death was.
I'm not bringing this up for e-cred but to say that this shit is absurd and needs to change, I'm sure it will take a while to happen but I'd hope that today's analysts and associates will improve banking culture so shit like this doesn't happen anymore. The work is important and demanding but in my mind an intern shouldnt ever be working past midnight.
Mod Note (Andy): What can WSO do to help prevent more tragedies like this? Please add your thoughts here: "Death From Overwork (Karoshi) In Finance"
