While a few very high profile investment bankers have been kicked out of their cushy jobs (though, often with huge salaries) now, it appears that plenty more are giving up on Wall Street. In the past few months a large number of analysts have come up with plans to do something else with their lives – saying they were burnt out or worried about the aftermath of the Spitzer investigations. They mostly say it was just a lot more fun when everything was going up and they didn’t have to work very hard to bring in millions. Now, it involves actual work and a smaller payout, so they don’t see the point.
