Comments on: The indignities of an investment banker in China A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: SelenesMom Wed, 23 Jun 2010 15:57:08 +0000 The error is that there are some “investment bankers” who get a lot of money and glory and do not post about themselves all over the place, although they are not immune to bragging. They are relatively few in number, although visible. Let’s say they are Erin Callan pre-fall and on up. There is also a huge army of “investment bankers” consisting of most of us, our friends from school, second-year associates, some analysts, and the whiners we don’t want to be associated with. This group is the leverage that funnels value-add up to those who really make the bucks, when it all works, which is not always.

No one says they aren’t allowed to whinge about it, just like everyone else does.
Just because you get paid to work hard, it doesn’t mean you have to like it…

Also, the $50m each is a totally irrelevant number to highlight.
It bears no relation to any individual’s pay.
