Things you wish you knew when starting out in IB
I am starting next week mystint with a Bulge Bracket in NYC. NYC is a new city to me, and I have been here for a few days to adjust. I am posting this asking any analyst, associate, or anyone in general for advice that they wish they knew when they were in my shoes. Some questions I have: What is the best way to budget your new finances? How do you adjust to the strenuous work week? Are their any office expectations to know beforehand? How the hell do I make friends in this new city? What is the most satisfying part of the job I'm not concerned with my technical abilities- just my ability to adjust to this new lifestyle.
Any input whatsoever is granted- even funny things. Thanks everyone!
