Can confirm numbers for two well-regarded BBs in ER:

  • Bank: BB
  • Bonus: $20,000 stub
  • Base: $85,000, bumped to $90,000 for 2018
  • Years Experience: Half a year

Second one:

  • Bank: BB
  • Bonus: $10,000 stub
  • Base: $85,000, bumped to $90,000 for 2018
  • Years Experience: Half a year

Both are for straight-out-of-undergrad first year analyst programs.

FYI, unless this is different at other banks, associate pay is not really linked to whether the analyst they work for is ranked. At least for the first few years or so its really about your performance and contribution and not your analysts'. That being said, its obviously easier to get exposure to sales and clients when your analyst is a top guy in his space. This is relative to other associates at your bank. If you're comparing two different banks, one with better research, you'll probably get paid more at the better shop.

I can confirm this as well, especially if you're in your first few years in ER. It's always confused me that people seem to place so much emphasis on whether you work for an "II ranked team/analyst" when inquiring about comp when it's almost totally irrelevant until later on in your career. And note that I'm referring to larger BB/MM firms where pay tends to be more uniform/structured.

Obviously this is not to say that whether you work for an II ranked (or otherwise well regarded) analyst is a bad thing to focus on. It's actually incredibly important considering how your day-to-day work and learning opportunities are heavily tied to your analyst. But when it comes to comp at the junior level it's basically an irrelevant question, since comp is almost exclusively tied to the strength of your bank's shop. (There's obviously fluctuation around that comp level based on relative performance with the firm, but again this isn't really going to be influenced by your analyst's II ranking or anything like that.)

ER is not worth it for a 10k bonus

Hey -- when do your bonuses pay out? Mine pays out at the end of this month. Logic implies there will be a bunch of open seats in the coming months.

I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold. I'll be fine once I get it
