    Getting Laid off at Citi is a hell of alot better than working at the shitty place I work

    Remember to always negotiate your severance package. If you can negotiate BEFORE getting laid off, you are in a much, much better position.

    Imagine working all year and getting canned with no bonus?

    Please feel free to fire some of our employees for practice

    The fact that you don't pay DB to advertise here makes you a terrible human being. If your crappy book ever hits Amazon, we look forward to negatively reviewing the shit out of it.

    Oh, and go die etc.

    Call us when Citi isn't having layoff's.

    Working at Citi all year and getting canned with no bonus > Continuing to work at UBS with a bonus > Spamming the living shit out of DB comments with shit about your worthless book/ideas/whatever and failing to realize that you may be one of the single dumbest motherfucking fucksticks ever put on this planet.

    Exactly – you would think all the retail brokers would have come up with some new material by now.

    Wait.. UBS's path to profitability: live-fire HR training ground.

    I can't tell if your trolling this site or mildly austic.

  15. Posted by Guest | November 15, 2012 at 3:54 PM

    Thought the same thing, but the guy has a website…. I mean, if he is a troll, he's seriously committed.

  16. Posted by Guest | November 15, 2012 at 3:57 PM

    You would also think that UBS would have stopped sucking by now…. wait…. no sorry, take that back.

    Follow up to my earlier comment, just had to share some spectacular little blurbs from Sam Dogen's (Financial Samurai) self written bio; http://www.financialsamurai.com/how-to-make-money

    -Sam ran a multi-million dollar business where he actively participated in the recruitment and retrenchment process of a notoriously cyclical industry.
    [No idea wtf that means, head hunter for a sanitation company?, how do you actively recruit an industry?]

    -Given Sam is financially independent, he is less influenced by money. He is also beholden to no one. As a result, Sam provides more unbiased, edgy, straight from the gut views on personal finance. [Don't even know where to begin, BUT, the fact that someone is trying to sell you an e-book, and qualifies them self by telling you they don't need the money, seems like a good place]

    -My current hourly consulting rate is $500 an hour and the discount is available to the first 100 customers who reach out. [Fuck off and die…. wait… send UBS your client list first, Christmas is coming]

    I actually bought Sam's book on how to negotiate a severance package and it was AWESOME! I got about $60,000 whereas I would have got nothing had I quit.

    Several of my friends have bought his book as well. Highly recommend it.

    The funny thing is, you're probably going to get canned because you're typing this from your cubicle at your fast declining banking job! haha

    How do you know? Bess treats me real good.

  24. Posted by Financial Samurai | November 15, 2012 at 5:00 PM

    Ouch! But, at least "Articulate Analyst" got to work all year even though he doesn't get a bonus right?

  25. Posted by Financial Samurai | November 15, 2012 at 5:01 PM

    Pumped you're checking out my site. Thanks!

  26. Posted by Financial Samurai | November 15, 2012 at 5:01 PM

    Good stuff Lindsay! Feel bad for folks who get fired or quit without knowing their rights.

  27. Posted by Guest | November 15, 2012 at 5:07 PM

    No problem. Gonna phone the registrar's office at UC Berkeley tomorrow morning. What are the odds someone else has taken 5 minutes to do so?

    You're a tool. No wonder why you are on DB and about to get fired. Hahaha!
