Just like in any other company (base + bonus), except maybe for senior executives who get equity participation and can become very wealthy if the PE deal goes well. Some of the more forward PE firms have started giving equity exposure to a larger base of employees, with some even going as far as giving it to every single employee.

Some firms like American Securities or Partners Group will offer co-invest in entry level investment roles but most firms still don’t offer it below principal level

I think I've made a mistake in my life, I'm working in this org for 4 yrs with no growth in salary or skill aspects. I'm very much depressed right now. I'm trying my best to find jobs , have updated my resume and also daily checking on Naukri profile but it's not helping me get any interviews. I only get calls from 3rd party recruiter they too ignore or don't respond. What am I doing wrong here?

Hello fellow designers. I will have an interview with a BPO company (role is Sr. UXD, and will be deployed to clients), and another with a design agency (role is Lead UI Designer). Both are fully remote. I’m located in APAC and it’s my first time to be interviewed by those industries, that’s why I’d like to ask for any advice on what to ask HR and the interviewer?

Some advice I got from my cousin was to ask the BPO company:
- the midshift and remote work is assured
- is there a sign on bonus
