    Sacked in the City

    In my 25 year career in the City I've been sacked 8 times, including 3 walk to the doors! This is in banking and fund management.

    Have other people who have had similar working lengths in City experienced the same level of getting sacked; or am I an outlier; or have I just worked for nasty people?

    Thanks for answering.

      Could have been worse - you could have had 2 divorces and a pack of "tax avoidance" schemes

        In my 25 year career in the City I've sacked one cretin 8 times, including 3 walk to the doors! This is in banking and fund management.

        Have other people who have had similar working lengths in City experienced the same level of cretinism; or am I an outlier; or have I just worked for nasty people that are useless at hiring?

        Thanks for answering.

                  It's normal. In my experience all banking contractors are cretins.
