I saw juniors fainting with stress and exhaustion on the trading floor – eFinancialCareers


Regularly, at least twice a year, people would leave their screens and faint as they walked across the floor. I worked in sales and this was a problem - I couldn't respond to my clients promptly because I was always involved in a meeting with colleagues and this was a source of stress. I loved the idea that my building had a gym, but when I thought about it in more detail I realised that I was spending 12 hours a day on my desk and then I’d head down to the gym, totaling 13-14 hours a day with the same people.
