Before anyone starts, I understand that this is I-Banking, and that slave-driver bosses are a commonality. However, I think my situation might be a bit extreme, and I was hoping to see if there's anyone out there that could relate.
I work at a well known MM bank as an analyst. I loved this job for the first few months - I loved everything about it. The hours were harsh, sure, but I expected that going in.
However, everything changed when we hired a new VP that I was assigned to. This was about ~3 months ago.
In one word, this guy is the epitome of an asshole. He is the stereotypical banker: failed marriage, chip on his shoulder for not having made director yet, etc. He has something to prove.
I get reamed out by this guy on a daily basis. Not for doing something incorrectly, but because I didn't do something that he didn't ask me to do, but that he expected done. And these aren't obvious things. Furthermore, I have pulled more 110-120 hour weeks these past few months than I did my entire first year. He -alone- expects me in at 7AM every morning, even if I was in till 5-6AM the night before.
I am physically, and emotionally sick. I am scared to go into work everyday. This just feels like absolute torture.
Someone slap me if I'm overreacting, but I don't know how much longer I can do this.
