    Worst Work-Life Balance

    Investment Banking Associate (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- Excellent Brand
    - Good Pay
    - Excellent and brilliant people

    Cons- Too much politics
    - Very unpleasant hours (90-120 each week)
    - Good performance of juniors not rewarded and recognized
    - No guidance of the client - the client gets everything, no matter how useless (e.g. translation work)
    - The bigger the client, the larger the deal, the more weekends you spend in office
    - Consider that your life is sold to the bank for the time of your employment
    - No loyalty to employees - the higher you are up the easier you are out

    Advice to Senior Management- Pay a little less and hire more people
    - Bear in mind that comments for a pitch at 2:00 a.m. before the presentation are not fun at all - don't do so constantly
