Who still parties here? Work hard play hard?
This question is geared towards those working in investment banking, especially at notable firms including bulge brackets and elite boutiques. Not college kids or international antisocial guys who got banking gigs solely on their GPA and analytical abilities.
Particularly interested in those working in SF, LA and NY. Since you got your Analyst (or even Summer Analyst) gig, how drastically did you have to cut out your social life? Is it possible to squeeze in 1-2 nights a week of going out to a bar/club and actually spit games to girls and have a good time?
Is this realistic in today's banking era? Feel free to share stories and suggestions on how to maintain a balanced social life while working 80-100 hours per week.
Interested because I will be starting a BB level gig and I have no idea
