    Around 22-25k start off from what I've read so far. (Journalism)
    Then anywhere between 30-50k even depending on how high up the ladder you climb.

    You won't have time to make a family unless you make one before you get job in IB. Plus, why make a family other than to have an excuse to overwork yourself?
    No offence but you have absolutely no idea what I will and will not be able to do? Silly comment.

    People do make family work in IB. Yes it's hard but it is do-able. A lot of people leave IB anyway to start a family with a huge savings account and going into a high paid job with less hours they wouldn't have been able to get otherwise. Seems like a pretty good deal from where I'm sitting.

    I don't know what you will do but I know what you will not be able to do in IB. And that's having time-consuming activities outside work.

    So you're saying no one in IB has a family. Right...

    Does reproducing and having your partner taking care of a child while you spend incredibly low amounts of time with them counts as "making family work" or "doable"?

    Making a family after IB sounds like a plan but will leaving an IB job get you a "high paid" job? You might just end up jobless or with a badly paid job. That seems more likely to be the case in these times of employment scarcity and workforce abundance.

    I am not saying no one in IB has a family. I am saying that no one working in IB has time to spend with his family (excluding holidays).

    I am not assuming that you will be there until your 50s. I assume that there are people that are (or have been there) until their 50s.

    I accept your point about employment scarcity and workforce abundance. But that's exactly why IBers are more employable than everyone else and more sought after. It is actually the opposite of what you've said, it ends up being an advantage. In times of employment scarcity and workforce abundance, employers want the best and that's exactly what IBs have and what causes salaries to go extremely inflated.

    You can spend weekends with your family at a more senior level. Sure you might have to spend a few hours in the early morning and late evening working plus a few phone calls but most of the day you can spend with them.

    Even if you become more employable, you are paying it with far more than just your blood and sweat. Is Heaven worth a hellish pain? I guess the answer to that question distinguishes those who get into IB and those don't. The link is extremely interesting.

    To me, yes.

    But people working in IB generally have similar traits anyway that impact them:

    - Upbringing (either very poor that motivates them or very wealthy that pressures them)
    - Insecure (most people in IB are insecure by nature and therefore feel a constant need to prove themselves)
    - Over-ambitious (most people in IB find it the only job that can contain their ambition)

    If you had to simplify it down, that would be it. ^

    Cute how people are actually getting excited and look forward to making 20-30k, apparently not knowing that they'll lead a pretty miserable life with that, especially living in London.
    30k is very good for someone who has only themself to look after and remember that these people are getting this salary right out of university, it is going to go up over their career. you expecting to earn a 100K a year right of the bat?

    Who said it was their starting salary...? Certainly not the OP...
