Facebok pays better than 1st year analyst?LIke someone in this thread has already mentioned, most of you have no idea what it takes to get into and graduate with a CS major from a top engineering school. It's no walk in the park and would make IB analyst work look like a joke. For the top students, offers at FB, Google or start-ups you... 3 years 5 months
A $5 million check or dream school+dream business...Those who respond dream school/job have probably not had to find out the hard way how tough it is to save even 100k on a 300k job, let alone 1mm or 5mm.

These days much of the business is about raising money more than it is about managing money. #1 is not the right... 4 years 1 week
Hedge Fund Compensation in a Banner YearUnfortunately I have just learnt this very hard lesson myself. After loyally sticking by my employer through thick and thin and helping generate large returns over nearly a decade I am being shafted on my bonus in a big year. Similar to the OP, I am the next in command guy in a small and relatively... 4 years 3 months
