TheStreet.com Videos 2:51 mins

Wall Street was a "sexy" industry for new recruits prior to the financial crisis, but while the paychecks remain oversized, the banking life has turned into drudgery since the collapse, says Kevin Roose, author of "Young Money". The young bankers he tracks in the book became conflicted about their roles in society following the Occupy Wall Street protests.
