I have an offer at a top BB in Debt Capital Markets, and I'd like to find out what the bonus numbers for last year were. I've read both that bonus numbers are the same as IB and that they are significantly less, so I don't know what to believe.
So have any of you guys called up people you talked to in the group and asked directly about bonus numbers? It seems like this is kind of rude since you're asking about salary, but how else are you supposed to find out? Are bonuses by group posted anywhere?
I ask because I'm trying to decide between a consulting offer with the same base and relocation, and obviously the bonuses will be significantly different.
