My bonuses are fake and not tied to my performance. I'm not sure what lesson that's supposed to teach me.

Yeah that whole "we dont care do what you want just put the time in" thing is total shit even if they tell you outright. its a test, pretty sure I got laid off from my first real job because of it.

I don't plan on working past 30, not in the sense of coming into an office for 40+ hours a week and doing some nonsense making other people rich.

I'm leaving for a weekend vacation today. Told my boss about it and he said "just leave early. Are you sure you don't want to leave early? You can if you want it's not a big deal." I didn't even bring up leaving early. They're not testing me, I can tell.

Also, going into an office and making other people rich isn't a job I'd love so that's a dumb argument.

If you're not one of the founding members of a company, you're just a cog in the machine, effectively making other rich.

Why would anyone pay you unless it were for their benefit?

They wouldnt, and a lot of the time they're making a lot more than you, doing a lot less work.

Anyone else getting an insane number of popups on this thread in the last week or so?
post #40119 of 57266
don't knock cogging till you tried it. getting paid a decent salary for a not too tough job that lets you live a nice lifestyle is pretty great.

I have no problem being a cog in the bulge bracket investment banking machine for around $120-$160k all in at 21. Moelis paid first year analysts $90k bonuses this year. Gonna live in my shitty room, which is like $180 a week and save shit loads. Lol that's probably bull shit I spent my internship signing bonus in like a week. I have no problem with whoever my MD is going to be clearing $2m a year working 40-60 hours when I'm working 80-100 because I can't be an MD out of university, they have skills I don't.

Mark, unless you have some genius invention how do you plan $500k net life style and to not work much past 30 considering your like early 20s now?

Jason Blaha is such a rim

"Jeff Seid is still running around publically talking about me being a pussy and how he will drop me if he sees me IRL... some punk ass kid with zero combat training zero experience against an opponent who legitimately was trying to kill him but who played around in a ring in college... ok kiddo any time you feel froggy just go ahead and leap come over and take a swing... I'll let you... but I do not want to hear any crying when I bite your nose off and spit it back in your pretty-boy face. If you come over and pick a fight you might want to have a new career picked out so that you can still afford that coke habit because I am promise you that it will be a life changing experience for you."

Yeah, no one will invest in rhet capital unless you can show you did some sick LBOs at whatever firm you're at.

I'm probably in the older age range for RHET (maybe?) and I'll echo a lot that's been said about careers/jobs. Do what you enjoy and it'll feel less like a job. That's just the simple truth. It's true, but not always realistic. Sometimes we gotta do the jobs we don't want to do in order to advance to where we want to be or survive.

I worked odd jobs to survive for the majority of my early adult life. I "fell into" a career job that I was indifferent about, but excelled in. I got promoted 3 times in 5-6 years, made it to a position that had people scouting/headhunting me via Linkedin. Although I ended up hating the field, and the job I was able to; pay off all my debt, take care of my GF so she could pursue and finish up school, live a comfortable life with hobbies and middle class luxuries, and money wasn't an immediate issue. After 6 years, with debt gone, GF in a good position, I quit my job at the beginning of this year. I'm now going after what I want to do because I can't imagine myself doing something I hate for another 6, 12, 18+ years.

Without getting too lecture-y I say if you're still young (Mark you're still in your early 20s if I'm not mistaken?) and aren't in survival mode, take your time and think long term about what you want to do/be, and then start your path. The longer you wait the harder it becomes. I might be in the minority, but for the long term I rather work a decent paying job that I love and don't mind 10+ hour days compared to a high paying job where I wake up every morning bitching and moaning about going in. Thankfully my new pursuit is pretty good pay and something I'm passionate about.

I'm jealous of young people these days.

The types of opportunities that exist for you didn't exist when I came out of school 13 years ago.
