Just Say No (6 Hours Before The Heroin Test)

adds.jpgI’m about to re-report something from Reuters that’s going to blow your fucking mind: bankers do drugs. Yes, taking a cue from the New York Times, the news service notes that there’s a good chance the guy sitting next to you is coked out of his skull right now. No one’s quite sure what begets what—do bankers on blow (Ritalin, Adderall) make profits rise or do high profits cause banker to do blow (Ritalin, Adderall), but they’re pretty sure Wall Street’s constant, overbearing emphasis on making money is “keeping drug dealers busy…ruining careers, tearing apart families,” and causing genocide in the Sudan.
Morgan Stanley spokeswoman Jean Marie McFadden said, “To my knowledge, we have not seen an uptick in drug use,” which sounds incredibly convincing. Convicted drug dealer Juan Rodriguez noted that many of his (“former”) clients “were” Morgan Stanley bankers, who “never complained about the price of cocaine.” And why should they? Morgan Stanley’s Q2 net income jumped 40% from last year to $2.58bn or $2.45 a share. The results handily beat the consensus analyst estimate of $2.01 a share. Morgan Stanley’s Q2 revenue jumped 32% from last year to $11.52bn and beat the analyst estimate of $10.03bn.
Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Citigroup, JPMorgan & Chase Co. and Bear Stearns all declined to comment on their drug use.
A hiring manager at one of the reticent five, though, did helpfully point out that while new staff must take a urine test, new hires are allowed to choose when they would like to undergo the cup during a 45-day period prior to their start date. “Our drug test is not so much a test of whether you actually take drugs as it is an intelligence test to see if you can figure out how long it takes to get traces of the drug out of your system,” he said.
Looking to land a position at Goldman but metabolically absent minded? We’ve provided some info. Don’t say we never did anything for you.

  52. I intended to draft you that little bit of word to thank you very much the moment again for these great advice you have discussed on this page. This is really open-handed of you in giving extensively all that a number of people would have made available as an ebook to earn some cash for themselves, especially given that you might have done it if you ever desired. These thoughts likewise worked as the great way to realize that other individuals have the identical desire really like my own to figure out a great deal more concerning this issue. I know there are several more pleasant sessions in the future for people who read your website.

  53. Hi there, I found your website via Google whilst searching for a similar topic, your site got here up, it seems to be great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  56. markieg98 says:

    Wow…isn't it nice to know that wall street works in such a 'timely' fashion. Those working there, probably already know about the drug time line mentioned. That is how they are getting away with it, and now, we poor folk, also know.

  57. STucker says:

    Why are we enabling these guys to skirt around the rules. If they can't stay clean and sober, should they deserve their jobs. If they knew they had to pick between their careers and their drug habits, maybe more of them would get clean instead of supporting the drug dealers.
