Default Re: The Aorta of Darkness (Conor Friedersdorf & Noah Millman)

Re Bankers vs. Paralegals: Unless you have an awful boss, being a paralegal is a relatively low-stress job with comparatively little responsibility. If a paralegal screws up, he may get fired, but the lawyer who hired him will ultimately pay a much higher-- and very public-- price. It's a decent paying, dead-end job with little glory that attracts people who want a quiet but secure life. Not type A personalities.

Finance has a lot more drama and a lot more stress; you work crazy hours, the burnout rate is high; thus a lot of $$$ incentive is needed to keep people motivated.

If you placed your average paralegal--no matter how smart--in one of these positions, they'd last about 5 minutes.
