What are the worst / best paying banks

Hi All,

What are some of the best paying / worst paying banks in New York. When reading about banks people are always complaining about pay. I've heard rumors about many banks (good and bad) and don't want to start recruiting at banks that don't necessarily pay well.

JPM & GS should be best paid.

Uhhh don't think that's accurate.

MM (Macquarie, etc) < BB (GS, JPM, etc) < EB (Evercore, Moelis, etc) < Centerview

And why is WF not mentioned here??

Not surprised by this. JP Morgan is absolutely killing it right now. This is just one example, but a friend of mine is a 25-year old associate there, trading exotic derivatives and made around $650K this year including bonus.

I was going to comment on the same thing when I first watched this.

Id like to know what a more realistic number is... Unless they are considering anyone that works at a bank an ibanker.

Sep 20, 2016

I assume the 275 000 laid off bankers include tellers, cleaning ladies, janitors, building security, maintenance etc

What about non-american banks? I have heard GS doesn't pay that well before you get really high up because of their brand value

The london bubble has popped!

Though a lot of that has to do with the decline of sterling.

Hardly a comprehensive survey of the market, look at the areas it covers:

Heavy on derivates sales and trading, structured credit and PWM. Not much IBD in there

exactly, those people aren't even really bankers by the definition any wall street-savvy person would use.
