I'm looking to get information on how compensation progression in a CMBS origination group at a BB looks like.

From talking to people, it sounds like Analysts start out at ~$90k as their base.

What typical ranges would be for bonuses? How quickly does the base salary and bonus grow through the Analyst, Associate, and VP years?

BB analyst 1 start at 85 base typically as is par with other analyst 1 across the banks. Can't speak to targeted bonus range.

Comp at my bank (not a BB) is

Analyst - $85k base, ~50% bonus (if you're good)
Associate - $100k base, ~50% bonus
I've heard rumors that first year VP is $250-300k

Hiring?

Not at the moment. Almost no turnover on the team

wait, no intermediate step. 250 all in to 700k in one promotion?

Sorry - was not clear enough. First year VP will pull around $250/300. As the years progress their production increases and depending on how they do, will be 400k, 500k, etc.

It's interesting how the gap from analyst to associate is a bit small. The associate figure seems low based on my experience working at a small origination shop in NYC.

Tell me about it... it's frustrating to me but they'll push you up to $160/170k if you're busting your ass. I think comp is low, but we also aren't grinding until midnight every night so there's a trade off

I'd assume its the same pay as all FO possitions at all BBs, right? How much are the differences in the bonuses though?
