So many people talking about automation, bonuses going down, layoffs, analyst classes decreasing in size, etc on this forum. Some of the jobs represented on this forum being declared as dead. There's articles online that say sales and trading, ER, a lot of AM are dead-end jobs that are about to be replaced. Saw a post of someone working at a top AM firm and he said he couldn't even consider doing this as a career because of how bad revenues were getting. Then there's things like PWM which 50% say is dying and the other 50% say is fine. And at the end, I've seen people saying that the remaining roles in finance like IB, Corporate finance, consulting, PE is going to be downsized because automation can do most of the work it seems like finance can't catch a break and nothing seems to be currently going well.
There's a Mergers and Inquisitions article that pretty much says screw finance, it's over, go work at Google. Can't link it but it's called: "Is Finance Still a Good Long-Term Career?"
