    McK Said:

    My base salary is the same as yours! 80K and both of us lose 50% of our bonus to taxes. But my company pays for business school and all my expenses?hmmm, and I get weekends to travel the world first class?hmmm

    whartonite forever Said:

    McK – change that to McD for McDouche – just like a typical consultant, you spin crap to make yourself look better – how easily you glazed over the difference in the SIZE of the bonus – yeah, i know it?s taxed at 50%, but 50% of $500K is still more than whatever peanuts you got – go have a starbucks (my treat) in that crappy lobby you share with all the other tier 3 firms and play a pick up game of chess with one of those homeless former consultants – how is your liberal arts undergrad working for you?

    wait, you are telling me a first year analyst at GS makes 500K?hahahah maybe an top associate in an amazing year, most probably a VP though?and those are the same salaries as us then. and really, my work is meaningless. of course it is! and what, is punching numbers into an excel sheet somehow more important? atleast i get to travel the world while doing my meaningless shit?you guys spend it in a cubicle.

    Consultant Ninja Said:

    Genius. Not the rap, it was pretty lame. The consultant looks like a lawyer anyways. I mean flogging the banking analysts into a froth about how awesome they are to entice them into buying your book. In your revenue forecast did you account for the rapid decrease in the ?banker? segment and a commensurate jump in the ?former banker? segment?

    The Post With The Most Said:

    Haha! That was so funny I just farted a hundred $$ bill out my ass. You service providers sure know how to put on a show. Here?s some advice for you bitches. McK: Please, shut your pie-chart spewing mouth. You?ve just put up about 4 posts over the span of the day. This is only further proof that Consultants don?t do shit but squeeze presentations out their assholes all day long. Go back to a 2nd tier b-school and get yourself a real job. I hear Kraft is hiring. Big Law: For some reason you remind me of the T-Pain-like-guy singing the hook. You?re loud, seemingly ethnic and wouldn?t add any value without the person you?re supporting. Keep serving falafels Eduardo. I?ll break you off some dough the next time i hear a good joke. Banker peons: Nicely done on the video. Once you guys get finished with your day at 2am start hitting up the comments. These BCGays are making you look like bitches. All My PE Ballers: Keep it pimpin playas? god damn it, keep it pimpin?

    Mountain Climber/Banker Said:

    I climbed mountains, many of them. Outward Bound to learn mountaineering, $2000. Weekend trip as an undergrad, Gas Money. Seeing the world from the top of Grey Rock in Larimer County, CO, priceless. For these things, there?s master card. But changing the destiny of of a company and its shareholders and taking a little skim for myself? Now that?s ?bank? and earns an Amex card with no preset limit. I?m ready to see Colorado a whole new way after descending my next 14?er?Louis XIV and a Cigar for apres climb/ski anybody?

For those who want to take real risks, build real value from scratch, hire and (de)ride client servants, and collect options worth 7/8/9 figures, there?s entrepreneurship.

    Europe - Superpower through Subtlety Said:

    Aah, yet another testament to the cheer inanity of the imbeciles across the pond (yes, both wanker-bankers and 2nd rate consultants) – you Muppets clearly have too much time on your hands after running your country into the red (read: owned by China / the Middle East). Like one American friend (the insightful exception confirming the rule) said: ‘speed does not compensate for the wrong direction’, i.e. slow down you uncultured and ignorant bastards and do something valuable with your country before it is on its knees! Oh blast, that already happened… ah well, I’m sure you will think of something, make another YouTube video or genetically modify some more food (yes, the effect is already showing in your deteriorating genes) or perhaps recall close to 1,000,000 GM cars (yes US cars are the worst on the planet because they are by halfwits liking to do things half-arsed) etc etc If you, the US bankers and US consultants, only could come together and work something out as a team, then maybe, just maybe, you could do something useful; like electing a new republican president and really cement your position as the laughingstock of the civilised world – ‘oh would some power the lord gives us to see ourselves as others see us’ – R.

    R. Burns is stupid Said:

    R Burns, You are stupid. You hate America because it reminds of your childhood. When you were a little boy being picked on the big bully. That beat you up a few times. And everyday, you thought, it?s ok because one day, the bully won?t get anywhere in life. Instead, the bully got stronger. Perhaps not smarter, but stronger nevertheless. Meanwhile, you never hit puberty and had to band with another group of little boys that also got picked on. And then you gained weight. So now, instead of facing a ruthless bully as a little boy, you face us with a big ball of fatty tub, we kindly refer to as socialism.

    1031 – Nice ?Firm? reference! To the rest of you? banking and consulting represent the bread and butter (read: average) of the high performers in any good to great school. You still find yourself behind us top dogs who invent and innovate (and earn at the very least double any banker?s salary at any given age). As far as the fighting for scraps, here?s how I see it? Bankers have the money and no life (save the Friday night binge)? Consultants have a bit of life (provided they?re not sitting in Yuma, AZ), but no money. Entrepreneur what what.

    Just to answer the guy who asked about PE, on average I work around 30-40 hours per week, not more. And PE is really really relaxed. You do a lot of lunches, dinners, you eat very well in all the expensive places. You meet a lot of intersting and extremely wealthy people. After a while, when your pauper friends ask you for the thousand time what exactly do you do , you just tell them ?I buy the masters that you slave for?

    The jokes about wachovia, Cornell and Brown (ok d*cking on Brown is funny. Is that an accredited institution or just an idea?) are funny, but its clear your insecure about your degree from Emory. Youre not ?sweet? because at MS people other than 1st year analyst bind pitch books. Youre are still a socially awkward human being no matter what ibank you work for. You still live off my crums (I?m not just referring the crums of a biscuit if you know what I mean). I?m going to Chile for a week to ski and enjoy the apres ski activities. That would include, but is certainly not limited to putting my C*ck in the ass of a nice local girl whose only wish is to come to america. And, it will hurt. My c*ck resembles that of a greek god.

    Last I checked an associate at Mck made 65k pre-tax plus a 20k (pre-tax) bonus? eww, essentially they comprise a new lowest tier for the investment banking analyst pool However they have significant upside? The potential to live double and triple lives. I have a friend who works for an Oil & Gas consulting firm who travels with boots and a 5 gallon hat. He has horrendous girlfriends in Houston, Dallas and Calgary. His emails (because I dont talk to consultants) are filled with glorified references to connections at the local Olive Garden, where the hostess (supplemental doorman) knows his name and gives him the ?power table?. Even at the airports, He praises and sometimes tips the TSA security guards that treat him the upmost respect while pillaging his bags. I guess he fails to realize that commericial travel is so, well, commerical.

    Balls Said:

    Investment banking is the most overrated profession in the world. While you loser bankers are inserting financial ratio line items in your models, giving reacharounds to your fellow associates for a job well done, and swearing because your balance sheets won?t balance, I am busy enjoying life. In fact, I will target for four sexual encounters over the course of today with my girlfriend. I have so much sex that I have to take breaks because my dick needs to rejuvenate from all the excitement. Conversely, you bankers allocate a maximum of 15 minutes with a brain dead model for sexual pleasure that you picked up at a bar that plays shitty music (once a week) because ?time is money? and ?I have to report to my VP at 8.? The ultimate goal in life is to make as much money with the least amount of effort (hourly wage vs salary). The second goal in life is to engage in as much sexual activity before your penis will no longer sustain an erection.

    LOL at the deuchebag Indian in the video, and LOL at the deuchebag Indian commenting in this thread with the nationalist bullshit. Learn to put together coherent sentences, and learn what the plural of ?king? is Indians are nobodies on Wall Street. That title you dumb brown piece of shit, belongs to the Jews and the WASPS who controlled your fucking worthless country before you ran from the famine riots of the shit-smelling suburbs of Mumbai to take refuge in this country. Arabs also, are merely tail waggers who are squeezed for oil money. Indians are a class below, and will always be a class below every other ethnic group on Wall Street, EVEN if you deuchebags learn to shower. Sadly the Street is now infested with these cow-shit faced ultra-nationalist urine drinking crazy jackasses. Every comment that comes out of your mouths is something about how ?INDIA IS THE BEST? ?INDIA WILL WIN? ?INDIA IS THE SUPER POWER? – not much different when I visit all the worthless assholes that actually live in that country talking about how ?INDIA WILL NUKE AMERICA, WITH THE HELP OF VISHNU? The only relatively safe place now from you shit-faced assholes is buy-side, since McK is already filled with these sewer shit eating Indian rats as well Oh yeah, LOL at anyone from a consulting firm not named McKinsey, you must hate yourself and you fucking suck at life, and LOL at McKinsey people pretending they are creating ?value? – please stop jerking Ian Davis?es dick and if you do, at least open your eyes when the cum hits your face LOL at bankers who think they are making dope money for the shit work they do – enjoy that worthless piece of shit small-cap Financial Analyst position that you guys inherit in a few months. Oh yeah, big law, go fuck yourselves. You are fucking failures – no one gives a shit if you can recite 20 books of procedural law, and no one really gives a shit about the work you do, other than you do it right and go back to enjoying your lower middle class lifestyles. Maybe you can pay off your loans one day. Hope you found law school memorable. Bet you enjoyed those books while I was banging every bitch in Cambridge including your wife, when you were cramming for the bar exam. And IT?

    I really don?t understand where this sense of self-entitlement comes from for bankers and PE guys. In the grand scheme of things, your $500K salary per year means jack shit. Why? Because I made $30M by flipping a website that took me 3 months to build; then I flipped a search engine for $10M that took me 1 month. For all of your VC dudes and buy-siders, I find it hard to believe that with all of the ?money savvy? you have, you?re still in a low yield job. And FYI – I gave 50% of my cash to my home-town rec centre and not to the douchebags at Pink Elephant. As a side note – I?m willing to be that 90% of everyone on this thread doesn?t get laid regularly without a girlfriend.

    The consultant gets home at 7:15 and calls it a life-work balance? Serious? I feel sorry for Accenture-types – go in at 7, get home by 7, make 65k per year, maybe a nice ?5k? bonus. Well? at least he is not a banker, whose work-life balance consists of working until 10pm, snorting cocaine, waking up with depression, seeing a shrink, never seeing their kids – who turn out screwed up because their parents were never around? vicious cycle The best work – IMHO – is hourly work – computer programmers get the opportunity to do that, and in the nyc area, you make anywhere between 65-120 per hour, and if you know an inkling of statistics, 120 and up. But I honestly do not know how that compares to a bankers salary. I think most of the time people quote the upper range of banker salaries. Well, the upper range for programmers is 700k (yes 700k, and I?m not talking about total comp and other bs). But seriously, can anybody tell me what an investment banker makes? What about those investment bankers at Lehman Bros, AIG, BAC, MS, CSFB?etc? How big are their bonuses? If it is just slightly over the ?DOW?, then I think they overwork themselves for nothing.
