Oh serious coin. Anyway, I think the point he is making is that any rank below MD is basically formulaic by number of years of experience. You generally get there even without any preferential treatment or outstanding performance. Getting to MD usually is more unpredictable, as it is dependent on some combination of personal performance, luck and circumstances. Usually, budget is a consideration as well, as you usually get paid a bit more (unless you’re in UBS). That is another thing outside your control and requires some boss to support you. 

pretty much. Being at the right place at the eight time is probably 80% (new desk, md retiring, etc). Also i found that your chances increase when you stat longer at one place ar the cost of marking yourwef to market ( you are probably underpaid )

Maybe it’s because I still have the sense of humor of a seventeen year old, but you’re bragging about getting ED?

or are we not talking about the same type of ED?…. what is ED?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Which big banks’ US operations have the executive director title these days? JPM, UBS, MS….anywhere else?

you basically need to come from a target school pedigree/work at prestigious firm in the US/have a really good connection.

Have you considered opening a google?  No barriers to entry. 

Just write web crawler, out it on aws lambda, have immediate access to 1000 compute engines, then cache results in  dynamo DB, accessing gigabytes of storage.  In tech 1 smart person can literally do everything.

I love it when I’m not the one to take the thread off topic for once.

I am glad you finally lowered yourself to personal attacks.
