I am a junior analyst who just landed a full time M&A analyst role in the city. I asked for the feedback from my director and MD and they say
'All the job you have done is great, that's why we gave you an offer. BUT, you need to learn to be STREET SMART in the business and do not expose your weakness to your clients, both internal and external.
One of my personal philosophies is the radical truth and radical transparency (BTW I am reading Ray Dario's Principles and I strongly recommend this book to you), which means I am not afraid to ask dumb questions (for example, this one) as long as I can get the best answer to make my decisions.
Could anyone offer me some tips on being STREET SMART in the IB business? Any book or speech I could refer to?
