From what we see of Wall Street in the movies, one would expect it to be a place overrun with workaholic men and women one Starbucks queue away from a complete mental breakdown, red-faced stock traders screaming into their cellphones, and young go-getters selling their soul for equity.
In a mid-position you would earn good money, but not ‘VIP clubs, limos and escorts’ kind of money. You won’t be able to afford a private jet but you might be able to buy a nice vacation once in awhile (good luck getting away from the 70+ hour working weeks). Wall Street is cool in theory, but unless you’re passionate about paperwork, banking and hard work it’s probably not the place for you. You’d be much happier looking at professional offices to rent in your country instead of moving into Wall Street. Wall Street’s great and all, but there’s a lot more out there.
