how to face my senior analyst at work

Was she hot?

I love how KKent is hating on some dood who just banged his hot older boss. Makes you wonder if he slept around at all in college.

Also saying the act was selfish, and do good by the firm blah blah blah come on? This is the same who basically quit two-three analyst programs because it wasn’t for “him”. He also was thinking about leaving his current firm for PE, before they gave him what he wanted, no?

Not sure if hes right person to be preaching to be a choir boy.

yo equity_research_nds -pls answer the question

based on how hot she was: was she out of your league, in your league or below you league?:))

Based on your answer..we”ll proceed further analysis :))

Best,

Sid

"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants"

Definitely agree with the pinkman on the wrongful termination lawsuit.

Kkent, this is why companies pay severance… it is very costly to fire an employee.

As far as sexual harassment goes, nothing that has happened so far has been a red flag for anyone except the boss. Because there was consent, it would be hard to argue that it was sexual harassment. If she chose to be really shady and lie about this situation and say she was harassed, it is a he said/she said and both can get fired. It ***might be worth confiding in some one you can trust so some one else knows your side…. if you can document it in any way that would be ideal for you.

Yeah dude if you’re feeling nervous just think what she feels. She is the one with the reputation at risk. You’re the guy that the older dudes would secretely want to high five.

First of all, NO, I did NOT sleep around in college. I don’t give a damn what you think about it either.

Second of all, I quit my first job because I felt I was working in the wrong field. I was correct in that–I now work as an analyst in real estate rather than municipal bonds. It’s about 180 degrees different.

Third, what the **** are you talking about with the PE? I had an interview set up with a PE firm BEFORE I was hired by my present company. I gave it about 5 minute’s of thought before I stuck with my current company.

It’s intersting how personal you made this given you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

Ok your right, I take it back, but you did the same by judging the OP and saying they should be fired right away in your first post, did you not?

I’d also note that you all are 100% wrong on employment-at-will. You can even Google this quite easily. “Unfairly” firing someone is not illegal. Wrongfully terminating someone is illegal. For example, terminating someone because they’re black is ILLEGAL. Terminating someone unfairly because you don’t like their personality is NOT illegal. Terminating someone because they miss too much work because they’re always sick is unfair, but not illegal. Terminating someone because they had a baby and took 3 weeks off IS illegal. Terminating someone because they had sex with a subordinate may be “unfair,” but is CERTAINLY not illegal.

If someone wants to post on a public forum that they got drunk and had sex with their boss, then I have every right to say that they are, at the very least, a person without any class. Am I perfect? Certaintly not. But if I made the mistake of having sex with my boss, I certainly wouldn’t do the classless thing and post about it on a public forum and then expect, “well, that’s ok. What you did is perfectly cool. Just be more careful next time. They can’t fire you anyway.” I guess I expected too much.

Uh yes it is. Like I said earlier this happened at my old firm and guess what genius….she won.

Well, it’s too bad your heresay doesn’t prove anything. If it were ILLEGAL to fire someone over a romantic relationship, it would be ILLEGAL for firms to have policies against it. Google it. You can find hundreds of articles about people being terminated for romantic relationships at work. Most likely, your old firm had a confusing or contradictory policy with regard to romantic relationships that the employee didn’t breach. THAT is illegal.

Hokies

Chillax….

I think everyone is a little baffled why you getting so bent out of shape over this. Its very undude like. And employees have that “no relationship clause” to protect them. But it isn’t bulletproof. KKent the legal expert with the capitalization of his POINTS.

I’m getting bent out of shape? I’ve had a half a dozen personal insults directed my way in this thread alone (“genius,” “BOM,” “choir boy,” etc.) and I’m the one getting bent out of shape? How is it that people throw personal insults at me and I’m the one who needs to relax?

I’d love to stay here and argue but I’ve got to go carpet shopping.

that reminds me of the time i was walking out of a bar with this girl I met and a car drove by and the guy yelled “stick it in her buuuuuutt!!” haha it was pretty funny.

Unrelated, but just trying to break the tension with a random story.

so did she end up letting you do it?

Yeah, I’m with adehbone on this one. Don’t leave us hanging. :)

Hokies

well, while making out with her outside the bar she was wasted and therefore honest I guess cause she said “oh I want you so bad! now I have to let you know, it’s that time of the month, so if you don’t mind that down there, good. Just wanted to let you know that.” That kinda lost the mood, so no, I did not stick it in her butt. She had a puzzle at her place she was working on that was a 70’s playboy model. Fairly odd.

please allow me to be the first person to congratulate you on your upcoming promotion…

equity_research_nds:

Don’t sweat it, nothing bad happened. Sex between consenting adults is perfectly ok, never mind the fact that our crack legal expert “you can google for it” kkent is getting worked up over it here.

On Monday, you should behave like a man with class - you walk up to her, ask her if you can talk to her for a couple of minutes in private. Tell her that you are afraid you had too much to drink on Friday and things got out of hand and you did not behave as a gentleman. Promise her no one will know about it (tactfully leave out the fact that you, as a true idiot, posted this all over the fscken Web and the matter is now being discussed by thousands of CFA candidates) and tell her you hope it will not affect your working relationship.

As I said, no sweat, some of the most illustrious careers in this industry are built on sleeping with your boss. You have the inside track, use it wisely! Now, any chance you can post her picture, big guy?

============================================
Science in a nutshell: Still confused, but on a deeper level ;)

equity_research_nds, as i read your posts from the past month, it sounds like you have not been having a great experience at work lately, i.e. you mentioned you’d like to be doing something else, you have a job that “really pays peanuts” and your “social life is screwed.” well, given your circumstances, i would probably say that the purported event between you and your senior analyst might actually have done some good for you. if nothing else, at least you know your employer offers some interesting benefits in spite of the crappy pay.

It was consensual sex wasn’t it? No one was coerced into it right? After all, she could say no at any time before you went inside her?
I think the best thing is to pretend nothing happened. Talk about work etc, don’t mention about what happened the other day if she does not mention anything about it. The awkwardness will disappear….

this will go down as one of AF’s best posts, though not as good as the famous LIII “sink ****ter” at Javis a few years back!!!!

Seriously this baby has Professionalism Standard exam question written all over her, I’d love to read the vignette, it would be steamy!

Trust me bro, I know exactly where you’re coming from…. and I mean trust me, I know. Do not mention anything!!!!!

umm..can’t we go back to SS6 and autoregressive heteroskedasticity?
What’s the name of this forum again?

Come on man, you are a professional, so do it like a professional:

NPV=initial investment(fair market value of the payload you unloaded) + next year’s salary (including cash flow from promotion)/ annualized daily recovery rate of your payload

well, to be *totally* fair, i think they were at some pretty small companies in quasi-advisory roles, so i don’t think they really qualify as “investment banking analyst” programs even though he keeps saying they are (which they aren’t)…but then again, kkent’s been posting here long enough that the heavy-handedness of his posts isn’t all that surprising. some people are the way they are
