How often do people get their bonuses bought out by their new employer in exchange for starting sooner?

Should be a given. RSUs and Bonus should be comp’ed for if leaving early otherwise there’s not much incentive to leave before bonus hits. Often they do this as promising to pay you a full year bonus during bonus cycle instead of an up front but out of your bonus.


It should be pretty standard as VP1 said. My company included it as part of my signing bonus.

Standard and expected. It’s a large part of your income in finance. Companies understand this and usually pro rate your expected bonus or give you a sign on to cover

Hmm but these are for traditional IB and PE firms, right? What about for REPE?

It should apply across the board

Should be standard at any/all companies. If they won’t do it, should make you question their commitment.

Current PharmD student here with an interest in transitioning into buy-side. Is this realistic given my profile? I will have ~1 year of SS biotech ER experience at boutique (summer and part-time during school), life science boutique consulting internship, Pfizer externship in medical affairs (oncology), and a comp. intelligence externship at BMS. Should I gun for ER full-time post-grad or try buy-side? I’m doubtful of the latter, more confident in former. Input much appreciated :)

Not trying to be political, but as a teacher, if you find yourself disagreeing, I’m genuinely curious as to why.

Real talk - at what point do you step back and ease up on the grind? 10 years in and I have some professional goals that I’ve achieved, but there’s a list of nice to haves, so wondering how to best prioritize them while keeping my personal life in mind.
