    Your Dream Gig: Now Within Reach

    Back in the day, as in 2007, Wall Street compensated its employees in a way that made them feel loved. In a way that made them feel special. In a way that made the long hours, the constant stress, the soaring highs and the crashing lows, the verbal and sometimes physical abuse bearable. Now, obviously, not so much. Combine that with suffocating regulation and you’ve got a bunch of financial services hacks who are saying “I want out.” Some, like the Goldman partners who’ve already made enough money to not have to work again, are simply retiring. Others are waiting to get fired. Yet other are seeking out the warm embrace of hedge funds. A lesser number, though, are using the shift as an opportunity to finally leap for that dream, be it baking cupcakes or slapping bare asses with branches. But about your dream?

    You know the one. The one you’ve never shared with a soul. The one that’s always in the back of your head. The one that keeps you up at night. The has you giving the side-eye to the dog-walkers you see your neighborhood– because it’s not fair. YOU should be the one wrangling the packs of pups, masterfully juggling dozens of leashes at a time that you’d never let get knotted.  Unfortunately, because this is the world we live in, no one would ever give you a chance. Something about being overqualified for the job, they said, looking you up and down in your dress pants and blue button-down, smirking, thinking “Like this guy can command the respect of a bunch of bitches.” Plus, you had a lifestyle to maintain and the golden handcuffs were still a serious draw. Now though, you’ve been unshackled. And you know all those little plastic bags you’ve been subconsciously saving under the sink for years, waiting for your moment to come? It’s here now.

    Confidential To Maria Bartiromo: Tim Geithner Doesn’t Need Your Pity!

    He may be the Andrew Tong to Wall Street/Washington/the neighborhood kids’ Ping Jiang (by which I mean people choke him out, and he doesn’t say anything), but damn it, if his time with the ladies has taught Tim Geithner anything it’s that he is a strong, proud woman whose self-worth will not be diminished by […]

    Obviously Gasparino Is My Guess

    So for some reason Erin Burnett and Mark Haines’s fill-in are discussing what “it says about men who like little dogs.” MH’s FI notes that “we have some people at CNBC, one of our colleagues– a male colleague– who has a small dog, but I won’t out him.” Then I guess it falls to us […]
