Non-Compete Section for IB Analysts
I've searched the forum for an answer here, but I haven't found many relevant discussions:
I've received an IB analyst offer for a boutique firm that specializes in financial services. The employment agreement contains a non-compete section which would bar me fromat another investment bank for 2 years after leaving the firm. This seems to be overly restrictive for an analyst. The firm has advised me that this section applies to all levels (i.e. analyst through director) and is non-negotiable. The 2 year non-competition period is unpaid, as well. Given that, I'm wondering how enforceable something like this would be in the event that I did find an opportunity with another financial services group in the future.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
