The I-Bankers Culture

Ha ha. There is no such thing as an Ibanks culture. When they say it, they are exploiting us emotional indians. Now when i am going to do an Ibanking summers, I saw many top bracket big bulge foreign Ibanks giving presentations on their culture but when the showdown time comes on day 0, their real culture is revealed. That of ruthlessness, lies and i dont know if sex and videotapes are involved too ;-). Some of they even proclaim that they are visiting this particular school exclusively in India and when you talk to your friends in the other school you realize that a 50bn $ bank lied. But thats what they are. maximize at any cost.

Am I worried?

No. That what comes to mind when I think that why have I not got any shortlists from the Big consults or the Money minting I bank powerhouses of the financial World. Before joining IIM CAL i was pretty desperate to find my own thing. What is that i really want to do? I was involved with the family business for some time and definitely the level of involvement and motivation was very high on the job floor. Now when i am here, I will definitely find a good cushy job for myself, but what will happen to the big search. Thats still on. If i am not able to find that, I believe an mba degree will add little value.

There can be another approach to life as my friend Apple singh says: Motivation is crap, just do it.
