Partners Only

How frequently are you asked about your compensation from junior staff? Seems like it’s the only thing people care about anymore

Very rarely. Seems a bit forward in our culture. They know we do pretty well.

I share some level of information about this frequently and think we should be less bashful about it, especially around good performers. When a talented person is considering an exit, we do ourselves no favors by hiding how great it is to be a partner in our firm/industry. If articulated the right way, it can be motivating

No, they also care a lot about their own comp

ZS is right. On my side, I am almost never asked. Their Comp - all the time

Usually only the directors in a perfectly understandable discussion of “is it worth it"

I’d also say I don’t get asked very often because I think most already have a rough sense from the answers others have given. I don’t shy away from giving some numbers, even if I have to caveat them heavily since comp is pretty variable

Totally not our culture to ask around this topic.

Absolutely never. But I volunteer a general ballpark to Principals thinking about their future. And occasionally even to more junior people thinking about longer term plans

I don’t really have much patience for people who have no meeting rsvp etiquette. I understand that it’s just business but if you can’t attend a meeting just let me know especially if the meeting is for you. And if you continuously miss it then i won’t try anymore.

For up or out people, do recruiters/companies ask if you left voluntarily or not? And what if you get asked for performance reviews but they are less than stellar, do you not show them?
