Like the title says- what are the groups/ firms that pay above street?

If possible it would be good to find which ones pay higher base and/or bonus? So e.g.

XXX & Co.-
Base- Above (80)
Bonus- Street

Before people start getting upset, I think its valid information and although pay doesn't really matter your first few years, I thought it might be useful to note.

I've used the search function and compiled a few data points:

(75 Base)-
Centerview
Evercore
Blackstone
Greenhill
Miller Buckfire
Houlihan Lokey ( just rx?)
SunTrust?
Stephens

Bonuses?

As a general rule, the elite boutiques pay above street in both departments. However, we're splitting hairs hear. What is $5k-10k on your base / bonus? Nothing to make serious career decisions over.

Blackstone pays goldman's top bucket + ~$10k, no tiers.

So more like an extra $25-30k above average bonuses while working 25% less hours than most BBs

Base salaries are usually about the same across boutiques/bb's though

Most boutiques tier analysts as well, so this is misleading.

Again, this is just not true for the majority of boutiques, and can be exactly the opposite in some cases.

Base salaries are usually about the same across boutiques/bb's though

Also wrong, as most of the elite boutiques pay higher base than the BBs.

I know for certain that Centerview pays significantly above street

Not sure what average bonuses were in 2010 but according to dealbreaker:

BX M&A first-years (we don't tier):

"70k base, 85k bonus." $400/crab legs in reach. Boom goes the dynamite.

25-30k above street might be understating it
