Prop power vs bank?

What's up guys, I'm currently a virts trader (DA) at a power prop shop in Houston. Less than a year of experience but am interested in some power trader positions in NYC. But these roles seem to be more RT trader/Scheduling positions, does anyone know what comp progressions are like for power traders in banks?

I'm assuming banks do more flow trading?

salary is same as banks, bonus is said to have higher variance but I'm assuming it's more
