Gonna have to give the firm

Yeah very firm and special sits strategy dependent

It’s a really small firm. I’m just trying to get an idea - would comp be higher (more like HF vs PE) given the outsized returns? Are hours hard given the hairy deals?

Comes down to strategy - is it more distressed PE or distress for influence, traded debt, rescue financing focused, activist/litigation etc lot of nuisances which will dictate hours. How many ppl / fund size? Gotta give us more to work with. A lot will vary by fund and PMs so hard to say. You’re best bet is talking to someone who worked there and left.

Hey everyone - I am 28 with 5YOE (2 in consulting 3 in industry) and am working towards a part time MBA at a T15 program. My current comp is 130k which I am quite happy with (having started at 52). I see posts here stating folks comp in consulting to be around 300-500k. How does one get to those numbers? Are you all in MBB or T2 firms and how did you get to that position? I was hoping to get to those numbers by 35 or 40, and was thinking of a plan to get there.

Let’s specify if we are mid market, enterprise etc. so we can see how the comp compares. Are the goals they set for commission and bonus realistic? I’m an AE as well my title for some reason is taking forever to update.
