Took a role at a family office last year working directly for a billionaire. Really regretting it now because I trusted his “discretionary bonus” and got screwed on comp (20% bonus despite good review - he doesn’t want to pay market). I don’t see a future working here and have been interviewing for a few months but it’s hard to make my way back to an institutional firm. I feel sick every day I go into work because I think I’ve derailed my career. 6 YOE with prior exp at a well-known SM HF.

Experienced hire Manager here, informed before Christmas that I’ll be taking another lap but not because of performance (5/5 on scats and all operating at next level) or metrics (22mm in MR) but the only reason is I need more time in the “saddle”… During this time, I’ve been replying to recruiters and after a PPMD interview last week, I was offered an SM role at a smaller firm with a base pay increase of 45% (225k) over my current salary. Very much considering this… thoughts?

I had 3 interviews back to back with PWC last Friday. First 2 interviewers were directors, they were on time and conversation went great. The third interview was with senior manager. When I logged in the video call he joins and let’s me know he will be 15 min late to attend client meeting. He joins back after 15 min and fires questions without letting me complete the answers. It left a bad taste because the 15min interview seemed hurried. Should I let recruiter know about this experience?
