Quick summary: graduated 12 months ago, been working at this 5 man M&A boutique for around 8 months. Was promised quarterly bonuses and a split on execution fees. Base salary was low @ $50k but still took it.
Fast forward to last week: haven't been paid any of the quarterly bonuses up until now cos the CEO is saying we're drying up on deal flow and cash. I was given a bonus of $3.5k before tax, so I'm gonna be left with fuck-all.
Was also given a $5k pay bump after 8 months. So now I'm at $55k and a measly bonus. Hours are pretty decent (never worked past 60 hours, only 1 weekend in 8 months). Still, I feel like I've been cheated over a minimal pay bump and a very low bonus. As for splits on execution, they're stupidly stingy about that, and I'm not banking on getting more than $10k per deal, once again pre-tax. We might close 3 deals next fiscal, so around $30k or some shit pre-tax.
Was promised 4 bonuses; only received 1 so far. Doesn't look like I'll get another bonus for another 6 months, and wont be more than $5k. I'm currently an analyst but also do associate-level work.
Should I start looking elsewhere? 3.0GPA with decent internship experience.
