What I wish was different
Did not really get any modeling experience. When work flow was down, there was a lot of just sitting around and asking people if you could take something off their hands. On the flip side, when things were busy, I watched an analyst put in probably a 110 hour week. Even as an intern, I clocked a 77 hour week, working for probably about 15 hours on Saturday and Sunday combined. As intern getting paid hourly with 1.5x overtime, I was happy to work 77 hours. But for a full time salaried analyst, if you spread the hours they worked over their salary, they were making less than the interns on an hourly basis.
