Not sure quite how to describe this but I’m thinking of jobs that are well paid and considered professional but don’t come with a requirement to bring in clients or run the business.
All I have so far is
air traffic controller
software engineer/ programmer
Dreams about the thought of a job with no management or client responsibilities...
The good thing about the criminal bar is you generally only have to see people once, unless they are prolific. But even then there is usually a decent period of time before you see them again.
so that would b half the partners @ my firm then ho ho ho ho ho [/rofoldskoolbantsmode]
Actuary. They are not allowed near anything that might be considered a client.
This is the flaw in all modern professional services firms. They actively go against Adam Smith because they think they are clever know it alls, when in fact their stupidity gives e.g. legal business development and HR people a good living. In fact, legal HR and BD don't actually involve bringing in any business or managing any risk. See also law firm general counsel who draft countless memos on policies nobody reads and just sign off on the PI insurers paying out for the modern lawyer's inability to understand law or write down anything they did that might mitigate their liability.
Law and accounting innit
ISDA negotiator probably makes more than an air traffic controller. Misapplying Automatic Early Termination is a bit less stressful than the airplane equivalent too.
Actuaries who earn a lot generally do have a lot of management responsibility/face clients and/or are self-employed (i.e. also face clients and have to bring in business).
You sit-in-the-corner stare-at-shoes number churner actuary doesn't earn significantly more than an in house lawyer. At least in general insurance. Maybe life and pensions is different.
Insolvency practitioner on the other hand...
...although they generally face clients so that doesn't count
Operational police DCI ,or similar
Surely drug dealer is all about finding clients and dealing (heh) with them?
Any PSLs on here?
Not a PSL but know a lot of them. Not well paid by the standards of the profession, although it is by normal standards, and depending on the firm you can get dragged into client work.
That's right crypto but you don't really have any responsibility towards them. Not really even any need for client care unless you're doing top end celebrity business.
