On an alarmingly regular basis, people send emails to Dealbreaker seeking insight, on all manners of business. "I just received an offer from [insert hedge fund here] and I wanted to know what you think of the place." "I'm a high-yield trader looking to jump ship-- do you have any leads on jobs or ideas about where I should look?" "I have a bet going re: who would prevail in a street fight, Jamie or Lloyd and need you to weigh in." "Is it possible to have romantic relationships (one-night stands) while spending every waking moment at the office?" "Do you think Vikram Pandit is the person responsible for his Wikipedia page including the line 'he then turned to business studies & finance and earned an M.B.A in 1980 followed by a Ph.D. in Finance from Columbia Business School in 1986, after publishing a thesis involving a crushingly complex financial puzzle, entitled "Asset prices in a heterogeneous consumer economy'?" "Coke or Pepsi?" "Medium or rare?" "Do you think Biff Basness has tried to have you killed?" "Are you still in touch with Gianna Beamers?" "How would you construct a Wildebeest costume? Don't ask me why." While we (I) have no real expertise in much of anything, you may have noticed that we are quite fond of expounding on topics which some would comment we know nothing about. With that thought in mind, we've decided to now answer your questions, whatever they may be, on a weekly basis, on the site* (all names/emails/identifying details removed, of course).
So! Please get started sending us anything that's on your mind, with the subject line "What Do You Think, Dealbreaker?" Even if you don't have anything for us to tackle, if we know our readers (and I think we do!), surely you'll all enjoy weighing in on your compatriots' issues and telling us how ridiculously off-base our answers are before ripping them to shreds. Who's with me?!
*We'll still answer questions/queries/whathaveyou privately but in that case you won't get the sagely input of the group as well.
