(8) Jan Claussen's answer to Is it really a sin to use the mouse while doing Excel work in the finance industry? - Quora
Pro tip: remove the F1 key. Whenever I walk into a room with analysts that have that key removed, and I stare at that golden hole, and then stare at them, and they stare at me while I stare at them, time comes to a hold, matrix style: a meeting of minds. The universe stops, because the paths of M&A gods have crossed. When this happens, sometimes, supernovas are created. You simply nod, the analysts nod, and you know: bros. Forever.

PS you remove the F1 key so that when you are “jamming” in Excel you don’t die the death of wanting to insert something in a cell (F2) but, while staring at the fresh interns from the Sales & Trading Division on their intro tour through the bank (by the way, only M&A and the larger Investment Banking Division really holds proper financiers, sales and traders basically do other things nobody really understands) , you actually hit F1 and LOOSE ONE SECOND as Excel’s mighty help tool boots. One second lost which the model builder could have used to create billions of value, of my god.

The Bullshit-Job Boom | The New Yorker
I do digital consultancy for global pharmaceutical companies’ marketing departments. I often work with global PR agencies on this, and write reports with titles like How to Improve Engagement Among Key Digital Health Care Stakeholders. It is pure, unadulterated bullshit, and serves no purpose beyond ticking boxes for marketing departments. . . . I was recently able to charge around twelve thousand pounds to write a two-page report for a pharmaceutical client to present during a global strategy meeting. The report wasn’t used in the end because they didn’t manage to get to that agenda point.
