Between The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Big Short, it’s natural that most of us would think that all investment bankers are scum. Oh, that and that whole collapse of the financial sector thing too, but let’s not get into that.
The fact of the matter is, Wall Street has a stigma, a stink. And sure, it’s entertaining as hell to be an innocent onlooker watching all these guys do blow and rip Patron shots by the dozens, but what about the guys that get into banking for their love of finance? What about the guys that don’t want to make money just so they can stick Benjamins in strippers thongs? The guys who don’t have a bag of blow next to their Alka Seltzer in their desk drawer? The guys that spend their late nights crunching numbers instead of crushing hookers?
