Under paid for experience, poor vacation day allocation, etc. 60k + 15 is way below market

Think you can do better than this. Way better. I would shop around and even consider the sell-side/big banks. For a couple years — even if not your preferred career path

It definitely sounds like you’re underpaid for that. What type of firm specifically? You could probably make a jump to a credit HF and bump up both base/bonus by a good amount

Well below market rate get your CFA taken care of and get on the 1st train out of there

How big is the firm? Doesn’t sound great to me

The package sounds small to me, plus it sounds like you’ve got some experience

On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊
