Need help ASAP… how to tell senior analyst if I don’t get a big bump I’m leaving
Believe my senior analyst overheard with an out of town salesman telling me basically I’m good enough now I should leave to greener (very small and older firm; mostly commission based and base across the board even for top senior analysts very very low vs street) SA and I easily top 3 team and top analysts make great money, but personally getting a minimal bonus currently outside of base. Told me he wants to talk and essentially sAid without directly saying it I heard you say you’re shopping elsewhere what can I do to make you stay (also knows if I leave could be over a year before he gets someone else comp is so low. Ex: #1 analyst at firm been trying to hire an associate for several months now) . Won’t get into specifics but we’re talking opportunities that are laterals but 40-60k base bumps plus performance based commissions (couldn’t tell you my current bonus calc but less than 10% on a top team at the firm that consistently produces.) Love the coverage and love my SA but I feel decision makers won’t approve even close to a match of other firms offering lifestyle changing $. Not sure how to approach someone who’s stuck their neck out for me multiple times and say convince them to pay me more.
