Doesn't work like that.
Look at The Complete Guide to Capital Markets for Quantitative Professionals by KuznetsovI was wondering if you can elaborate different types of quants, for favor?
People in finance typically work 60 hours a week, which is more or less standard in high tech industries. With some exceptions the real horror stories about people that work 100 hours a week are in things like mergers and acquisitions and aren't technical positions.Like, I don't want to deal with clients and dont wanna get stressed and dont wanna work like 100 hours weekly.
If you have a Ph.D. in physics, I'd strongly, strongly, strongly advise *AGAINST* getting another degree. You'll have several tens of thousands of dollars in extra debt, and the added usefulness of the degree is minimal and probably negative.One last question, if I choose to pursue this career after phd, as a quant, would you recommend to spend two years to get a MFE(MMF or MFM) degree or accumulate more job expereinces?
Same here. One good thing about finance, unlike academia or other technology jobs, is that with very rare exceptions, you don't have "homework" and your weekends are free.Didn't you get a phd? I don't think I ever put in less than 70 for the last decade until I landed out of the field.
I did, but I think I only put in that many hours the first year when I was taking a full course load. After that, there was the occasional weekend but I think I averaged 45-50 hours. Except when I was writing my dissertation.Didn't you get a phd? I don't think I ever put in less than 70 for the last decade until I landed out of the field.
