After you do your stint, newly minted PE associates make 250-350 (all in), base is generally low to mid 100's. Issue is that most will keep you for only a few years then make you go back to b-school, very rarely are there internal promotes unless you're a stud. The VP pool is about 20% of the associate pool so most people get stuck as an associate for a while or end up going into something else. Ends up being really good money as a 25 year old, average for a 30 year old. If you are good and can bring in money/do deals, you can climb, but that's like any industry. Probably more important for you to find something you want to do and are good at, because you make the real money when you are a partner/boss anyways so you mind as well find something you enjoy.

$180k - $250k+

Depends on experience going in. At the associate level you can expect $300k at C/A/K. Girlfriend just made the change from IB to PE.

Same as bankers

Looking for refrel for Delivery Manager post.

I used to be passionate about my firm’s people. Loved coaching junior folks and paying it forward with all the great mentoring I received early in my career. But my firm’s values and senior leadership priorities have incentivized a purely numbers vs people culture. It’s made the job so much less fun and personally fulfilling. Anyone also struggling with this and any advice?
