How do I earn 129 at 33? By working my a**e off on gruelling Risk/Compliance projects.

I rather think the praise should be directed to Another Anon! (Although I imagine the hours must hurt at an I Bank)

129k at 33 is do-able. There's a fair few A1's like me who are not long out of Uni at 23. With 10 yrs experience that's not going to be unfeasible.

No way am i staying in this racket for that long for that money though.....

Another Anon to anon (#17)

The hours in IB are longer, and there is no downtime that you would normally get in between projects. Despite the obvious financial benefits, I do get a lot of satisfaction in having a helluva lot of reponsibility and automony. It beats coming into a new client for a few weeks, having a dig about and thereafter re-hashing a powerpoint slide that was previously done at another clients six months previously. As another post alludes, many traditional clients of Consulting firms are now starting to wise up and a lot of business is driven not by quality, but cost and MC's are starting to be treated as another standard service provider. Hence, this was a key driver for my leaving consulting and moving into IB.

in terms of hours... tough to say. I am sort of on call all the time but never feel like I am working too hard if that makes sense. An afternoon off here a 3am call to the US there if you follow
