Close call between Moelis and Evercore. Moelis will get you about 170k as a first year while Evercore will pay you in the 145-155 range. The others are both ~140k. As far as placements go, top kids at Moelis generally have their pick to wherever they want with top PE. Evercore has been good too, but slightly less in the top PE firms and more middle market. Jefferies and DB dont even come close...Moelis makes you work harder too depending on the office...NY is similar to Evercore while LA is pretty crazy. If you can work relatively hard, then definitely go to Moelis. If not so, then Evercore is my suggestion.

Ya, that seems a little ridiculous. Which elite boutiques pay the most? I'm guessing it would go:
1. Centerview
2. Blackstone
3. Moelis / Greenhill
4. Lazard / Perella / Evercore

Everyone's thoughts?

Info above is misleading. I know for a fact that overall comp at Both Moelis and Evercore in 2013 for analyst was the same - $150k. BX is 5k less and Centerview is 10 - 15k higher. Evercore was 152.5k in 2014, dont know if Moelis was higher or lower but I am pretty sure it was not much different.
Its a toss up between Moelis and Evercore, but given culture, I would go for Evercore over Moelis anyday. In terms of placement you will get the exact same interviews from both places, it really depends on how strong of a candidate you are!
