Boutique, First Year Analyst Comp Rates? Need help negotiating
I'm in the process of negotiating offers at 3 boutique, middle-market IB firms, and I'm looking for some insight into what others are receiving for similar placements. Two of the firms are in NYC and one is in Boston.
I don't want to push too hard, but I know I have leverage with two of the firms (wanting me to commit before January). I'm heading back for my final meetings with the partners at all three firms in early December, and It will definitely help knowing what others are receiving.
Anecdotally, I'm hearing a lot of numbers being thrown around the $60-65k range with limited bonuses for boutique, middle-market firms. Your input would be much appreciated.
Thanks ahead of time!
