You can retire by the time your 35 if you're good at your job in IB providing you sacrifice your time.

I'd personally would become an IB but that's just me and i'd happily sleep less in order to make a fairly large wage.

investment bankers basically take care of people's stocks, bonds, companies etc. that's the very basic way of explaining it.

WTF? By the time you're 35 there's nothing left worth having money for. Start off working for 'your future' and before you know it you'll be too old to have any fun with that money you slaved to earn.

Absolutely not.

Absolute vs. Relative income. If you're working 100+ hour weeks and making $100k starting out, good luck.

I'd rather work 40 hour weeks and make 40k. Good luck enjoying all your money when you're emotionally and mentally depressed.

I don't think you guys noticed that dude said "occasional 100 hour work weeks." He didn't say that a 100 hour work week was typical. Relax. I'm not sure. I barely have time to enjoy my time now. Not sure if I wanna sacrifice even more time just for more money. But early retirement is enticing. I'm undecided.

100+ hour weeks? how is that even possible?

24 x 7 = 168 hrs/week

100/7 = 14.2 hrs of work/day

Investment banking is a miserable existence, if you care about money and nothing else however go for it.

Are any of you even in the position to obtain an IB job? You guys act like it's an easy job to obtain too...

ditto. they act as if people don't work their way up in IB. bust your ass off for the first 2 years and then you move on to other opportunities.

Do what you love and have a genuine interest in, don't just chase the job that pays the most. If you do that, I guarantee you'll be miserable, regardless of the money you make.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

To get into i-banking, you most likely have to attend a top 10 college or network like crazy.

I have several friends who landed full-time ibanking positions this year (right out of university) and I have to say, I definitely see them a lot less now that they've started working. On the flip side, they're all 21-22 and pushing bmw's/porche's, living in really nice downtown apartments, and have a LOT of fun on their downtime.

It all boils down to personal preference. Even in medicine, the most hotly contested surgical fields aren't the most highly paid ones, they are the ones with the best pay-to-lifestyle balance (dermatology, ENT, etc.)

Oh, and it goes without saying you have to be really bright to get recruited.
