Reply
Posted 2007-11-10, 07:44 AM
I was in class yesterday and Bear Sterns, one of the top financial firms in the world, calls me and announces that they want me to work with them. Basically, i have a job for the next 3 years with pay and bonuses. This is nuts

Cool. Do you have to do any kind of training? If so, are they paying you for training or are they asking you to pay for your training?

A lot of business places do. I know with accounting internships with a lot of companies you get paid 25 bucks an hour to goto DISNEYLAND.

i am basically the middleman of the company. Not only do i make the financial statements that get reported to the SEC, i create the ratio and trend analysis for the brokers. After the sale, i keep constant contact with the clients and help them create wealth (hence wealth management). I also report to top manangment and help them decide whether raises and benefits should be added to employees and i help monitor retirement funds. The pay is great and the bonuses they told me about are alot for somebody coming out of college.

Most of the job is math, excel spreedsheets, etc. Very little english and mostly finance accounting. The math is simple add subtract, multiple and divide shit. But using the spreedsheets and having to sign my name to all documents makes it harder

That's cool that you got a good job. How many hours a week are you looking at working on average or did you not ask for a ballpark number?

How are you at public speaking? You're going to be doing a bit of it if you're reporting to higher-ups.

Yea. Don't be surprised if you work closer to 100 a week. I've talked to some people that did financial work for a big firm and they worked like over 100 hours a week on average. But I'm sure it just depends on the firm.
