Hedge funds are a tough place to make it too, but the exit opps are amazing, even on the tech side. One of the reputable funds cuts their bottom 10% of performers every year, so don't go into it thinking it'll be gravy and the politics won't be there. The best part is that they make money no matter which way the market goes

The over generalizations above is astounding. Use some god damned critical thinking folks. No, not all HFs are better than Consulting. And OP's success there will depend on very different factors/strengths. That being said, even if OP hates it/can't make it, having a reputable or interesting HF on your resume is a differentiator, and will help make jumps around the financial space and/or back into consulting

What was your ‘merit’ increase this year? to know what the typical base salary increase was for this year after 2021 having 6-7% inflation. Has anyone successfully negotiated a pay raise for ‘merit’ (read: cost of living) raises? I got 5%. I started at my company beginning of Q2, and was rated as having ‘excellent’ client delivery, but brought down to ‘strong’ because I didn’t do much internal work.
