Just recently got an offer for investment banking at a regional boutique. While it certainly isn't what I had in mind when I first started networking, after everything I've gone through in my job search, I'm certainly happy to have an offer. :)
Question though, I know this isn't aor even a reputable boutique where end of the year bonuses equal to 60-100% of your salary is expected. However, in my offer letter, it mentions nothing about possible end of the year bonus at all. Thus, should I not expect even a 5% bonus or anything like that? Would they have mentioned it if they were planning on giving end of the year bonuses? I only ask because the base salary is relatively low, but in either case still happy to have something in this environment!
