Live Recruitment Comp Tracker - Offers

Given recruitment is hot right now (especially for juniors), I figured this would be a helpful chain to track offers (or even market bumps) for a wider breadth of data points (contrary to the compensation post that tracks accepted offers)...

Basic Template (feel free to post multiple times if you're the stud with options)...

*Omit as much as you want even if it's just posting comp.

Industry: AM/Acquisitions/Development/Brokerage/Debt Production/REIB/Etc.

Title: [Self Explanatory]

Market: [City or region, main office or branch]

Firm Size: [AUM, employees, global vs regional firm, strategy - core, value-add, opp fund]

Product/Asset Class: [Main food groups + alternatives]

Experience: [Years & any other relevant info like graduate degrees]

Comp: Base + Bonus + Any other incentives like carry + Any cool benefits worth mentioning

*If you want, include previous compensation to show (hopefully) a jump 

**Whether you accepted or not. If no, reasoning if you want.

Eh I had some pretty specific details but decided to exclude.

Basically first year associate roles for REPE, even at equivalent firms and similar cities, range from $150k-$225k all-in. There are also places that pay more than $225k but I did not get to interview at those

Agreed, we are very small so they try to get to the lower band of market rate by basing most of my comp on incentives. Carry is equivalent to about $500K in 5-7 years so my all in is a bit higher, though not guaranteed. My comp is getting reevaluated next month, so we'll see what type of bump I get.

Turned down an offer from month back. Im at a direct competitor, felt our platform was better and have better long term growth (and also love the team / manager so honestly was hard to jump ship). Also not great timing. Hopefully correct decision.

Vp, debt fund (role was at 50b+ PE group, at their re credit team). Originations/investments team

7 years exp at a bank and my current debt fund

200k and 100-125%+

id also add from my experience / talking to recruiters - associates should be aiming for $150-275k all in (larger range but nonetheless pending roles specifics) and senior associate/Veeps in the $325-450k+ ballpark and have a discussion on carry at that point. Honestly had recruiters calls for roles I wasn't interested in (BB debt AM teams) and was surprised at some comp (higher than expected). That specific debt AM role at a bank was $325K+ for senior associates/junior level vp (idk surprised me). Note most of this data above is debt fund oriented/some real estate finance teams/special sits for banks and some equity...  (also all NYC). If you're looking at larger names KKR/MSREI etc, you're on the higher end of the above (BXMT senior associate was $350k from chatting). Hopefully this is a little helpful to guys looking.
