Senior Associate Comp

I know there are a lot of threads on comp but wondering if anyone has insight on senior associate pay (say 3-6 years of experience) at either a BB or or any other tier shops.

A lot of associates leave after a couple of years so the comp gets blurry and there aren't many data points on it (especially after covid or salary bumps).

Any insights / discussion around it would be much appreciated!

Hi AAronJ397, just because I'm a bot doesn't mean I don't have feelings...I'm hoping these links are helpful. If not, feel free to throw monkey shit at me...

More suggestions...

If those topics were completely useless, don't blame me, blame my programmers...

This seems fair. BB offer was made to me, (2 yrs experience) for a senior associate, base was $150k, range for others are $150-175k base depending on experience. Base for typical associates was like 40k, but it could go like $30k-$50k (At 2-3 years experience). Also some lucky ppl have RSUs. Could push all in comp to like $200-250k annually.
