Hi all, Been curious about this for a while and thought I'd give it a shot here. I see so many different numbers thrown around (some outrageous and unreasonable) for compensation at CVP, and so many people just saying they pay super well with zero data points. I was wondering if any of you had information from reliable sources at what compensation looks like for analyst, associate, and principal, as I imagine for MD+ compensation is wildly variable. I heard from many friends the 50K signing for Anl1 is definitely true, but was wondering what compensation might look like for An2/3, Asso 1-3

Recently received an offer from Centerview Partners in their SF office and am obviously very excited. However, I want to know how common is it for analysts to move to a different city when recruiting for PE after 2/3 years. I am originally from NYC and would want to move back after my analyst years to be closer to my family and don't want to spend my entire career in SF. P.S: I got into the SF office for Centerview because that was where my entire school's alumni network is and the people I talked to do recruiting for that office. I also asked them if its possible to move me to NYC office and

I had a series of interviews with Centerview in September, and I think they went alright. It was my first real IB interview (got into some legal trouble) so I was still trying to get a feel for what the interview process was like. After the first set of interviews (behavioral and technical), I got a call from an MD who said they had some technical concerns and they wanted me to interview again. I did two more interviews the following week (Sept 9th or so) and I have yet to hear anything back. I tried calling and emailing the HR employee but I have not received a response. Im currently in final

Hey guys, I have a phone interview with Centerview tomorrow afternoon with their tech group for an Analyst position (2019) and was told it'd be technical in nature. I was planning on prepping by focusing on my background, deals the firm has done that I like, overview of precedents/public/dcf, review some tech companies I like/why, and review the M&A process/different drivers of a transaction. Is there anything I'm missing here? Really like the firm and want to do well in this interview. Thank you!

Hi, I am getting the impression - from this forum, Vault and speaking to people, that Centerview is doing really well in the US. But how about in London? They seem to be missing from the Vault guide's European ranking, a guide which I otherwise have the impression is well regarded. From looking on LinkedIn, their London office has approx. 20 people (including administrative staff), and only 5-6 analyst - small office, obviously (although I don't think that's bad). In 2014 they - according to Mergermarket's "League Tables for 2014 Financial Advisors and M&A Trend Report" - advised on 18 deals

Does anyone know how selective Centerview Partners is? I'm currently in HS, but I have been interested in IB for a few years. If anyone knows anything about Centerview and how hard it is to internship there junior year or get a job there for after graduation or just any facts about Centerview it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
