Wall Street’s Idea of Work / Life Imbalance

Maybe it’s the season, Passover, Easter, the Spring equinox. You know that whole rebirth, cycle of life thing. Whatever it is, something got BusinessInsider into taking the lipstick off the pig and showing the warts of life on Wall Street.
In 23 frames that no banking recruiter will ever show a candidate, BusinessInsider lists the kinds of Wall Street hell  that would make even Dante reconsider whether he should have added a tenth circle . In its own version of “abandon all hope,” BusinessInsider inscribes its entry to the frames: “Click to see how working on the Street ruins your life.”
Here’s a sampler:
You will, however, make a boatload of money, most of which you will save since you’ll have no time to spend it. So apply here .
Few women work on Wall Street, which, after seeing the toll it takes, only shows how sensible the gender is. That being the case, the Japanese financial giant Nomura Holdings figured it only makes sense to provide more toilets for men than women in its New York skyscraper headquarters.
The New York Post  broke the story citing documents filed by the building owner asking that “water closets and lavatories” on some of the floors Nomura will occupy be allocated 75% for men, rather than the 50/50 split required by code.
Hoo-hoo. This could get to be an EEOC thing, if the speculation by a spokesman for the American Restroom Association (I do not make this up) turns out to be prescient: “They could get into a thing where they say they can’t hire more women because they don’t have enough toilets.”
