The first year comp should not be a factor. Centerview only makes sense if you want to be a career banker. The pay differential from moving from some other EB to top PE/HF for your third year will mean you end up making more in 3 years than you would at Centerview anyway.

elite boutiques are overrated as eff. pay range is from 30-80 at my firm and pay has nothing to do with iq (100% politics). bulge brackets paid really well this year and had initiatives to protect analysts but boutiques didn't do anything so even if you got top bucket at a boutique it wasn't worth it. if you have friends at a boutique talk to them - they will let you in the over-hyped secret of the "elite boutique"

You have no idea what you're talking about, especially as it relates to Centerview.

Wah wah wah; I suppose you would've been better off if they paid you based on all the deals yoy sourced instead, right?

If he had an offer he would have known what they pay so reply only if you can contribute something meaningful. I have a friend who has an offer from centerview for the summer, I believe they are giving him 80k base annualized and 3k housing stipend.
