What's market for LO junior level compensation?
Hey guys, currently interviewing with a number of LO shops for research associate roles (2 yrs of IB experience) and I'm curious what I should expect in terms of comp?
My current role is paying 90 base + 75 bonus as a second year IB ANL and should increase to 95 + 90 in my third year. Not sure what large LO funds pay their juniors - I'm assuming 125 + 125? How does that scale over time? Funds I'm referring to are Artisan, Allianz, etc.
Assuming I spend a few years here and look to lateral elsewhere, would SMopps be on the table, or do L/S SM funds view LO shops negatively?
