So I unfortunately did not get a IB job straight out of college, but I do work for a F500 company. Most the other people doing this work at the company are not very ambitious, most complain about work and they are not paid enough. Meanwhile I come from a wealthy family and started working there, any opportunity they give me I work as much as I can they only let me work 50 hours a week currently but that has netted me a 20 % increase in pay from what my original offer was so well worth it. Yet for instance the person right beside me complains 24-7 about money but will not stay even a minute extra at work and collect that big overtime pay.
Just makes me notice how much peoples difference in mindset is.Due to me having money already given to me by my family I likely need money the least out of everyone in there, I just need experience. Yet I already do more work than most people in the office.
