How often do MBB firms raise pay, specifically for the undergrad and post-MBA levels? I know that they all raised bases about 10k fairly recently, and with investment banks raising pay yet again, will we see a pay increase sooner rather than later? I guess I don’t know anything about the history of MBB pay increases and what factors go into an increase. Would love some insight on this topic if anyone has some, as I’m incoming at one of the firms next year.

Hey Folks! I spent the last year and used my bonus to pay off all my credit cards and started an emergency fund. I’m currently about half way to having 6 months of net pay saved. Right now I have the fund evenly split between a “high-yield” (.5%) MM account and a TD brokerage account invested in a in a index fund. My question is would it make more sense to put that brokerage money into a Roth IRA since I could take that principal out in a emergency. Also already maxing out my 401k. Thanks!
