Guess I missed the humor in it.   Is your typical PM that big of a douchebag?   Hope those suits have kevlar and steel in the back.

A friend of mine was telling me about his job as an analyst a while back and every little thing he told me was mentioned in this video.

I don't know about PMs, but I can say by my experience the typical corporate boss is that big of a douchebag.  One of ex-mine, a relatively low level guy, once explained to us, the workers, the reason he and his fellow managers were not using the personal award system was because we as employees had not used it to award each other.  Yeah, wrap your brain around that one.

ala Dilbert; Does he have strong managment skills, or is he just a jerk?

hang them both by using the tallest tree. Ask them both if they see the fucking forest then, just before they swing into emptiness.

PM vs. Analyst

I was hoping to see a 100oz Au bar flying toward the cranium of a Wall St analyst.

Not very funny.  Sorta lame.  Sounds like it was written by a pissed off analyst.   Quit bitch, and stop complaining.    You're paying your dues so you can eventually be an overpaid PM yourself.  

Are we supposed to be sympathetic to that?

How hard up or not a black or white consideraiton, there are many shades of grey.

They are "hard up for simulation" and yes, they are from the SEC.

Why do you need to know what a company does to invest in it? That is what mutual funds are for.

Or my favorite:

"DES-PgFwd-PgFwd-PgFwd 'BUY' is not robust just overruled everyone because of what some tip sheet said!"
"No, that was my thesis...and did you see the news out? I was 100% correct."
"But it' down 30%!"
"What I said was going to happen,'s not reflected in the stock but I was essentially correct."
"Well I guess we have something to talk about in the quarterly letter then."

Oh man....  I know some of those guys....

Unfortunately this is exactly how you get a key to the executive bathroom and renumeration in every organization I've encountered.

Great Work! Rings so True.  I'm sure I-bankers can relate as well.

100% accurate from my experience

Bastiat's picture

Working in a boutique IB in the mid-west, back in the mid-80s, I got this response after describing a deal on the phone to a Goldman (I think it was) banker in NYC: 

"That's sounds like a great idea but it won't work."  

Me:  "Why not?"  

Him:  "We have the smartest people in the world here and if that idea was any good we'd already be doing it."

True story.  The idea did work, btw.

sadly i can neither see much of the vid nor hear any of it because the ads and headlines running down the side cover most of the display on my various monitors regardless of size or shape (and the sound control).  just like every time on ZH these days
