Is Elite Boutique Salary/Bonus the same as JPM/GS/MS?

I'm super sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm the first in my family to attend college, currently a freshman at a top 10 college. After searching the forum I could not find a clear answer. I believe both are $85K base salary? Unsure about bonus. And I think, but not totally sure, hours are better at an EB? Thank you.

Yeah first year out of undergrad at the age of 22. Yeah my EB pays $95k so bonus is about 80% ish give or take. I believe BB still pay on the $85k scale + $10k signing bonus so therefore its about $45-60k actual bonus. Although I heard some BB pay stub bonus and I have no idea how that works.

And yes, there are fewer EB slots, my analyst class is about 15ish kids total (NYC) whereas I know for JPM their FIG group itself has 20 incoming analyst. I do believe though the quality of the student is the same for top EB and top BB just matters on what your preference is.

EBs usually give higher pay
