Why do people want to get into IB? It seems like when you start out all you are doing is editing ppt for 90 hours a week? Is it just all for the money and potential to earn a shit ton? What do ppl gain from starting their career in IB?
The tiers of pay are significantly higher. Good luck getting above a 250K salary (sans benefits/equity) before 31 in tech.
Lastly, in my experience I've met more people business minded (MBA,JD, future MBA ) in IB than I have in tech. Greater connections and more likely to be promoted to exec coming from banking than I'd you're a SM at a tech company.
