Hi_My_Name_Is...:

are IB bonus usually larger than S&T

At analyst level a tiny bit. At associate level would say IBD are paid more across the board.

At VP level and above, lots of dispersion, top performers in markets are paid more than IBD, but average IBD guy gets more. (Most VPs in markets at 220-400 all in, but i know personally one at 1m+)

GridironCEO, what's your opinion? Comment below:

No, it's a prorated $40k bonus for the entire year. So the Summer '16 entry level analysts got $20k in January and will be getting the remaining $20k in July.

I would imagine at this point all they're getting is a letter saying "at least you weren't laid off!"

For Markets (S&T) @ DB:

DB told juniors (anyone below VP) they would pay "competitive" with street. Likely will find out in early march with mid march payout.

March 2016 were this: A0 (Graduate in May, 85k base salary, started in July, rotate during fall, hit desks in Jan): Base raise from 85k to 90k, 10k stub A1 (have completed 1 year on desk): Base raise from 90k to 95k, bonus ranging from 10k-40k A2 (have completed 2 years on desk, most promoted to associate): base raise from 95k to 115k

TripleDown, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Whoa, looks kinda shitty across the pond, at our firm it was a bit weird this year due to all the alleged FX rigging and shit so bonuses for all were smaller but still based upon p&l. From what I hear guys on the FX desks around me are taking in approx £160k bonus on average (acg was across 5 people so not exactly representative). The BSD on the FX desks apparently took in 1,2mm, although he nailed it during brexit and us presidentials

Coconut1983, what's your opinion? Comment below:

They look SUPER shit. Basically they didn't adjust FX after Brexit vote, so London total comp for anything below VP is almost as low as fixed USD salary in NY. Lots of Associate 1 in london basically got similar to analyst 1-2 in NY...

For VPs and above it's a bit lower than NY but their total comp is computed in USD so it's still okey.

A2 - 140k Base & 90k Bonus

Nice guys may not finish last but they sure don't finish first. Loyalty is not rewarded, it's taken advantage of.

Also, some of the numbers quoted on this board are very inaccurate. I have plenty of friends who are 2 years into the bussiness of S&T and taking home 200k all in with 2 years after (undergrad) school is ridiculous. After 2 years, 120k (all in) for S&T is where most seem to be. I have friends at GS, CS, & Citi
